Why do racial disparities school discipline in exist? The Role of Policies, Processes, People, and Places.

As I discussed in this post, I am part of a research team at VCU (where I am getting my PhD) with the Metropolitan Educational Research Consortium (MERC) studying racial disparities in disciplinary practices in K-12 public schools. The study specifically looks at this phenomenon in the Richmond, Virginia metropolitan area.

I previously participated in a podcast about the study with other team members.

More recently, I helped to write this brief (third author) associated with the project entitled, Why do racial disparities school discipline in exist? The Role of Policies, Processes, People, and Places.

This brief is part of larger regional study of racial equity in discipline policies and practices conducted by Virginia Commonwealth University’s Metropolitan Educational Research Consortium (MERC). The goal of the broader project is to: (1) analyze racial disproportionality in discipline across the Richmond area, (2) explore various interventions designed to ameliorate disproportionality, and (3) provide recommendations that inform policymaking and practice in the Richmond region. This is the first of two research briefs on racially inequitable school discipline. The subsequent brief will examine the history and theory of action behind different discipline models or interventions, as well as evidence of their impact on racial disproportionality. At the end of this brief, five of the key research studies on this topic are summarized.

  5. The wearing of Spirit Halloween masks and costumes started a long time ago. The Celts believed Spirit Halloweennight brought out the spirits of the dead that would roam free among the living on the earth. Some Spirit Halloween were fun and good and humorous and then on the darker side there would be some resentful and hostile ghosts that did not enjoy seeing the living enjoying the bounty of life in the land that once belonged to them that have already past to the next world. The Celtics would wear masks and disguises to hide themselves from these dangerous spirits by painting the their faces with soot from which later evolved into the more distinguishable Halloween masks and Spirit Halloweencostumes ideas of today's Halloween costumes. Not long after it also became custom that by imitating the Spirit Halloween by dressing as skeletons or ghosts they would blend themselves in and not be seen by the bad spirits.

  6. Halloween costume ideas are what make Halloween a unique alarming night of loathsomeness and fun.Any tyke will get up the following morning after Halloween costume ideas night and the primary inquiry thatwill be at the forefront of their thoughts, where's my Halloween sweet? What's more, what sortof Halloween costume would I like to have one year from now? The capacity to wear a Halloweenveil and change yourself into something or another person is the fervor of sprucing upon Halloween costume ideas night. Changing yourself into a scarecrow, beast, vampire, or some other newHalloween outfit thought this is the most energizing piece of Halloween costume ideas night that you canappreciate and the most preposterous sort of Halloween costume is better.
