Disabling Punishment: The Need for Remedies to the Disparate Loss of Instruction Experienced by Black Students with Disabilities

This report provides the first state-by-state estimate of how much instructional time is lost for students with disabilities due to disciplinary actions such as school suspension. The study documents the disparities between black and white students with disabilities.

The difference in days of lost instruction means there are huge inequities in the opportunity to learn. The study was prompted the U.S. Department of Education’s decision in February 2018 to seek comments on its intention to delay implementation of the IDEA regulations that pertain to racial disproportionality in special education, which include disciplinary disparities. The report on the findings of the study includes recommendations. An executive summary is also available.

Read more about, and access, the report as well as the executive summary.
