School Suspensions Report Released

From the AP, school short-term suspensions are up statewide, but long-term ones are down. See story here. See link to DPI report here.

An excerpt:

Short-term suspensions in North Carolina’s public schools increased during the previous school year while long-term suspensions fell, according to an annual N.C. Department of Public Instruction report released yesterday.

Local school districts reported giving out 302,303 short-term suspensions to 152,000 students, or about one for every 10 students, during the 2005-06 school year.

The number was a 4.3 percent increase over the year before and outpaced overall school population growth of 2.2 percent.

Short-term suspensions are defined as 10 days or less.

E.C. 🙂
