Faculty in Inside Fordham: Dr. Carolyn Brown on School Discipline Practices for American Indian Students

A new study by Carolyn Brown, Ph.D. (Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at GSE) and Caterina Di Tillio (GSE doctoral student and network leader for the New York City Department of Education) highlights the special challenges facing American Indian schoolchildren, showing that they are more likely to be disciplined than are their peers who come from other racial backgrounds. 

The study, which focuses on Arizona’s statewide data and high population of American Indian students, will be published in the Journal of Education and Learning, and is highlighted in the January 13th, 2014 edition of Inside Fordham in an article titled “GSE Researcher Sees Bias in School Discipline Practices.”
