Recently released data shows an astounding 73,000 suspensions in New York City last year. Suspension rates are on the rise across the nation and African-American students are three times as likely to be suspended as their white peers. Some teachers say that suspensions are overused, and studies show they have long-term effects. In a partnership with Uptown Radio, Jackie Mader reports that the new data is pushing schools to think differently about their discipline policies.
