    On January 8, 2014, the U.S. Department of Education issued guidance designed to assist elementary and secondary institutions in meeting their obligations under federal law to “administer student discipline without discriminating on the basis of race, color, or national origin.” In essence, the guidance places educational institutions on notice that if they enforced intentionally discriminatory rules or of their policies lead to disproportionately higher rates of discipline for student in one racial group, even if the policies were written without discriminatory intent.

    On December 18, 2018, the Federal Commission on School Safety, led by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, recommended that the discipline guidance issued in 2014 be rescinded by the Department of Education. In a statement regarding the decision, DeVos stated that the decision to rescind “makes it clear that discipline is a matter on which classroom teachers and local school leaders deserve and need autonomy.” Given this turn in the Department of Education’s view on this matter, the question becomes: how do educational institutions work to ensure that their disciplinary processes are administered in such a way that they do not disproportionately impact students of color and students with disabilities?

    In this program, the speakers will provide an overview of the rescinded disciplinary guidance issued by the Department of Education in 2014. Speakers will explain, from their unique perspectives as a member of the board of education for a large school district, civil rights attorney, and educational advocate, the impact of the decision to roll back the guidance. The panel will also explore how the administration of disciplinary processes in education could serve as another example of implicit bias that works to contribute to the school to prison pipeline.

    Join our experienced panelists as they explain the Department of Education guidance on how to administer student discipline without discriminating:
