Students of color are disproportionately affected by school disciplinary actions and arrests. Research shows this can lead to a higher probability of crime involvement and poverty. Data from the U.S. Department of Education shows the difference between how many K-12 public school students of color are in school and how many are receiving school-related arrests across the country. Numbers are reflective of the 2013-14 school year.
|States||Percent of students of color who received school-related arrests||Percentage of students of color enrolled in K-12 public school|
