Reclaiming Students: The educational & economic costs of exclusionary school discipline in Washington State

Category: School Discipline

In December 2012, TeamChild and Washington Appleseed published this joint report, presenting a first of its kind look at the statewide impact of school exclusions on Washington State students. The report included recommendations for moving forward in transforming school discipline and keeping more students engaged in school and on track to graduate.  Many thanks to our project partners including:  Washington Appleseed, the ACLU of Washington and Garvey Schubert Barer.
