The federal School Safety Commission released its recommendations today and, instead of suggesting serious steps to ensure…school safety (like gun control), it decided to use it as an excuse to get rid of federal guidelines designed to reduce discrimination against students of color. This, despite a Government Accountability Office report earlier this year that provided evidence for why the guidelines are needed (see The Best Resources Explaining The GAO Report That Finds Racial Disparities In School Discipline). And a new report also just came out: Suspensions Are Down In U.S. Schools, But Large Racial Gaps Remain is from NPR.
