WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or cases referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or African-American, according to a report to be released Tuesday by the Education Department that raises questions about whether students of all races are disciplined evenhandedly in America's schools.
In addition, black students are more than three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended or expelled, according to an early snapshot of the report released to reporters. The findings come from a national collection of civil rights data from 2009-2010 of more than 72,000 schools serving 85 percent of the nation.
The Education Department said it would release more details Tuesday.
"The sad fact is that minority students across America face much harsher discipline than non-minorities, even within the same school," Education Secretary Arne Duncan told reporters.

Hey, I’d bet that children of past alumni also get less punishment than others, heh? Maybe those that donate lots of money to the school get no punishment at all. Maybe that is why it just seems that others get more punishment...heh.
There is one black child at the Catholic nursery that my 2.5 year old daughter has teamed with. I told my wife: Maybe she is an Oombalawala Princess or something like that.
Hey you never know!
These troubled kids were created in the liberal welfare state. There are millions who are ready to take daddy or grandpa’s place in prison.
Ummm... Why isnt this on the MSM? Oh, got it... Ill just move on. Nothing to see here, folks.
that is BS!
If so I hope it will be the left that receives the brunt of it
More than 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or cases referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or African-American....In addition, black students are more than three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended or expelled
I read the article and there is not even a hint of which offenses are being committed. The implication that these schools are somehow more predisposed to calling the police on minorities, "just because." One can believe that, if one also believes in Santa Claus.
Campus cops and administrators are racists? Who knew?
When they’re adults, there’s problem because they’re being ‘disproportionally arrested’. When they’re children, there’s a problem because they’re punished. The assumption is that both are the result of discrimination while the reality is it is the result of high levels of criminal activity and miserable cultural influences. By making it a racial issue, the liberals have insured that many will not learn proper behavior in school and instead will terrorize the population as adults.
Minority Students? I had no idea white males were more violent.
Perhaps it’s more serious behavior?
“Mark my words - this is the next big Democratic Party project: to allow juvenile miscreants to beat, maim or kill at will, as long as the perps are black or Hispanic.”
Next? We’re already there. Whites and Asians have adjusted their behavior accordingly, avoiding their neighborhoods while voting for anyone who will abort/contracept them out of existence. It is working with blacks, but they are simply being replaced by Hispanics.
When peckerwoods go feral, it results in things like the Fall of Rome, the Hundred Years War or the Western Front. Really, truly and finally provoke the peckerwood beyond all patience at your own peril.
More quota crap from the professional race baiters.
Check out the elephant in the room problem the Race Pimps have:
Already happening with the blessing of the Justice department. A second term for O will see an uptick. Ridding this country of people (except for uber wealthy) of European descent, one way or another, seems to be a goal for Dems and this admin.
“Black students made up 18 percent of the students in the sample, but they were 35 percent of students suspended once and 39 percent of students expelled, the report said.”
The numbers pretty much reflect per capita incarceration rates of adult Blacks. The simple fact is that there are higher per capita rates of crimes committed by that racial group.Or does the gubmint now wish to apply affirmative action to crime and sentence transgressors according to their race rather than their crime to reflect the racial makeup of the population at large and assure diversity in prison arts and crafts classes.
The current administration seeks a Clockwork Black or a Clockwork Brown world.
“In addition, black students are more than three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended or expelled,”
Are they also three times more likely not to have a daddy?
