Suspensiones y Expulsiones: Una Mirada de Cerca a 9 Distritos Escolares del Estado de Washington
El año pasado, la organización sin ánimo de lucro Washington Appleseed tuvo dificultades al tratar de determinar el número exacto de alumnos suspendidos o expulsados cada año en el Estado de Washington.
Este año, con más información disponible por parte del estado, la organizacion está compilando la información nuevamente. Aunque incompleta, nos permite tener una visión mucho más global que el año pasado, con unas cifras que rondan los 47,500 estudiantes suspendidos o expulsados al menos una vez en el curso 2012-13.
Last year, the nonprofit Washington Appleseed had a difficult time finding out exactly how many students are suspended or expelled each year in Washington state.
This year, with more data available from the state, it is putting together a still-incomplete, but much fuller picture, looking at patterns among the roughly 47,500 students suspended or expelled at least once in the 2012-13 school year.
This week, the group released an analysis of discipline data from nine school districts: Bellevue, Edmonds, Federal Way, Marysville, Olympia, Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Yakima.

New York Daily News opinion editor Joshua Greenman recently explored arguments from both sides of the public charter school debate - a debate he characterized as “bitter.”
“I know because, as a member of the Daily News editorial board, I’ve helped write pieces strongly supportive of outstanding charters,” Greenman recounts. “As editor of the op-ed page, I’ve run pieces by both enthusiasts of the movement and by those who think it’s the root of what’s wrong with school reform.”
