DAYTON-SCHOOL SUSPENSIONS
Racial justice group asks Dayton city schools to reduce out-of-school suspensions in future

DAYTON, Ohio


A community activist group is asking Dayton city schools to reduce its number of out-of-school suspensions.

Vernellia Randall, a University of Dayton law professor, says the district's suspensions rate is four times higher than the state average.

The Dayton Daily News reports Randall told the Dayton school board Tuesday that black students are suspended more often than other students for the same behavior.

Randall cited research that out-of-school suspensions make students more likely to drop out.

Dayton Superintendent Lori Ward said the district would review the data presented by the group Racial Justice Now before commenting.

The group proposed that Dayton stop out-of-school suspensions for preschool through third-grade students next year, with a moratorium on suspensions for disobedient behavior, truancy, use of tobacco and profanity the following year.
