In a school district with a low Discriminolgy rating minority students have a higher risk of being suspended and expelled, identified as having a disability and dropping out of high school.


The Discriminology Factor
The Discriminology (Di) factor, for In-school & out-of-school suspensions, measures the rate at which African-American students are disciplined in relation to White students. For example, a Di factor of 2.00 indicates that African-American students in a particular school district are 2 times (2x) more likely to be suspended/expelled than their White classmates.
