Schools traditionally have held students accountable for misbehavior with the use of disciplinary measures such as: detention, suspension and expulsion as consequences of breaking school rules. Intuitively, many educators believe that excluding a student from classroom instruction places that student at an academic disadvantage. This study investigated what effects disciplinary exclusion had on students who are removed from their regular educational setting as a punishment. The research examined eight middle school students who received an in-school suspension and then studied the affects upon their grades, attendance and behavior over a six week period. The research showed that suspensions had no significant effects upon the grades, attendance and behavior of the student participants.
