Stop the School-to-Prison Pipeline

Charter schools’ discipline policies and high suspension rates lead to push-outs and poor outcomes for some students. Year after year, the statewide average for out-of-school suspensions is at about six percent. For example, at the Roxbury Prep Charter School, these numbers are significantly higher. In some years, out-of-school suspensions reached more than 60 percent.
