This chapter discusses a number of issues surrounding the most widely implemented school disciplinary practices in U.S. public schools today out-of-school suspension and expulsion. It discusses the current prevalence of suspensions, the effectiveness of suspensions, and health and social problems that have been shown to be associated with suspensions. It also examines what is known about the reasons why students are suspended from school and raises a number of questions and concerns about the way in which certain categories of offenses are defined and reported. It discusses issues surrounding the disproportionate rates of suspensions for African-American and Hispanic students and concludes with a brief discussion of the prevalence and outcomes associated with the use of corporal punishment in those states where it remains legal.

Keywords:   suspensions, disproportionate impact of suspensions, corporal punishment, minority students
