Discipline, disability, and ethnicity

Open mic: What are your views?

Unless you’ve been on vacation or living under a pile of rocks, you’re probably aware that there has been extensive discussion of concerns about disciplinary actions in special education, especially with regard to whether those concerns have to do with special education students of ethnic minorities. Here is an incomplete catalog of sources.

Please comment. I welcome your views about the question of whether US schools have in the past and are still now discriminatorily disciplining individuals with disabilities from ethnic minitory groups. It would be good to discuss this topic. Add additional sources!

Please keep things respectful, of course. Ad hominen is not welcome!
