The use of exclusionary discipline (ExD) – defined as discipline that removes a student from the school setting via expulsion or suspension – has been found to undermine students’ health, well-being, and educational achievement. With the support of a federal grant from the Administration for Children and Families (90Y#0122-01-00) and a grant from the Spencer Foundation, members of the Public-School Exclusionary Discipline Study (PEDS) team will be examining and mapping the prevalence, disparities, and factors associated with the use of ExD in U.S. public schools.
