School suspension rates in charter schools within LAUSD and implications for students with disabilities
by Luelmo, Paul, M.A., California State University, Los Angeles, 2013, 55; 1547354
Abstract (Summary)

A disproportionate representation of students with disabilities in school suspension has been documented for many years. Suspension is associated with negative outcomes in the long run and is linked as a predictor of ethnic disproportionality in special education placement. This study uses descriptive data to examine differences in suspension rates between a small sample of charter schools and traditional schools.
