Suspending students may risk their academic future

Schools often use suspensions to discipline students. But how effective suspension can be in addressing future behavior problems? What will be the impact of suspension on academic progress?

Once suspended at early stages of their study, especially boy students could be suspended again and again, missing their academic trajectory completely. The study appears in Children and Youth Services Review.

The study submits the following findings:

  • Boys rated by teachers as aggressive, defiant and disruptive are more likely to be suspended than girls.
  • Girls rated by teachers as disruptive and lacking in parental school involvement are more likely to be suspended.
  • Once suspended at lower classes, the student is more likely to be suspended in higher grades also.
  • Racial bias easily influences decisions on suspension of students.
