WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is issuing new recommendations on classroom discipline in an effort to address apparent disparities in how students of different races are disciplined.
The recommendations encourage schools to ensure that all personnel are trained in classroom management, conflict resolution and de-escalating classroom disruptions.
Government civil rights data show that black students without disabilities are more than three times as likely as whites to be expelled or suspended.
