My middle school is categorized as one of the lower performing schools in the county and is in need of extra support and assistance for our students, who all experience high levels of poverty, violence, and educational inequity. The majority of my students will either be the first or in the first generation of their families to attend college. Statistically, African Americans, boys, and students whose parents had less education were more likely to be suspended or expelled. Students who prepared more for their classes, spent more hours on homework, and aspired to higher academic achievement were less likely to be disciplined at school. Helping students engage in school may be protective against disproportionate school discipline. Only 27% of them will graduate college within four years (compared to 42% of students whose parents graduated from college). But not our studentswe all aspire to go to college.
