Why an Equity Statement?

A report from the Civil Rights Project at UCLA found that Wisconsin tops the nation in suspension rates, disciplining 34% of Black high school students, while only a 4% suspension rate for white students. This is the largest Black-White discipline gap of all 50 states at the high school level. Wisconsin's suspension rate for Black elementary students is the second-highest at 12%.
