Schools are unfairly pushing girls out. They suspend girls for minor stuff—like going against strict dress codes or “talking back.” In general, schools suspend Black, Latina and American Indian/Alaskan Native girls at higher rates than white girls. These practices tell these girls that school is not a welcome place. These practices may also be informed by illegal gender and racial bias. This tool kit will help you find out if your school’s discipline policy treats girls of color fairly. Use this guide to learn your rights, how you can change your school policy, and where to find help.
