Racial Discipline Gap in Schools

Dr. Gregory’s scholarship is driven by the need to understand how some teachers and schools disrupt racial and gender disparities in school discipline.

We also know some schools are able to close the racial discipline gap. We need empirical examinations of best practices and programs to help support educators in transforming their approaches to school discipline.
