Roundtable: The Perspectives of Youth Affected by Exclusionary School Discipline

American Institutes for Research

This report summarizes a 2013 roundtable where 19 young people, ages 16 to 23, discussed the effects of exclusionary school justice on their own and peers' lives and school experiences. The participants brought up three major concerns: exclusionary justice limits opportunities to learn, is applied disproportionately and subjectively, and deprives students of the support services they need.
