Efforts to end disproportionality in school discipline are gaining ground across the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation.
In addition, the University of Virginia Curry School of Education and JustChildren, a Program of the Legal Aid Justice Center in Charlottesville, Virginia, released a groundbreaking report on December 18, 2013 examining discipline disparities in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
