The increasing number of preschoolers being suspended and the frequency of their punishment across the nation has unearthed a “troubling racial skew.”

According to TheAtlantic.com, a UCLA Civil Rights Project examined out-of-school suspension data for every school district in the nation and found that nearly 3.5 million children were suspended at least once during the 2011-12 school year.

Other key findings:

  • 4-year-olds were expelled at a higher rate than 3-year-olds.
  • Boys were over four times as likely to be ousted from prekindergarten as girls.
  • Black children were expelled about twice as often as Latino and White youngsters, and over five times as often as Asian-American children.

As a result of the spike in suspensions and expulsions, research has found, “out-of-school punishment feeds the school-to-prison pipeline.” According to The Atlantic, “repeated suspensions breed student disengagement, making youth more likely to dropout and more susceptible to entering the juvenile justice system.”
