WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 70 percent of students involved in school-related arrests or cases referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or African-American, according to a report to be released Tuesday by the Education Department that raises questions about whether students of all races are disciplined evenhandedly in America's schools.
In addition, black students are more than three times more likely than their white peers to be suspended or expelled, according to an early snapshot of the report released to reporters. The findings come from a national collection of civil rights data from 2009-2010 of more than 72,000 schools serving 85 percent of the nation.
The Education Department said it would release more details Tuesday.
"The sad fact is that minority students across America face much harsher discipline than non-minorities, even within the same school," Education Secretary Arne Duncan told reporters.

So ? They commit more crimes, especially in big cities. They are called GANGS : )
This is along the lines of the old finding that violent psychopaths were more likely to have been subjected to corporal punishment at a young age. Liberals tend to think that beatings led to mental disorder. Conservatives understand, rightly, that mental disorder manifesting itself in serious misbehavior, led to beatings.
Couldn't have had anything to do with the fact that more than 70 percent of the crimes committed in schools were by Hispanics or African-Americans.
Mark my words - this is the next big Democratic Party project: to allow juvenile miscreants to beat, maim or kill at will, as long as the perps are black or Hispanic.
Lack of respect for authority is in the equation somewhere.
They also commit more serious offenses more often, too.
The same bogus argument could apply to men verses women imprisoned for violent crime:
“98 percent of all people in prison for violent crimes are men. Therefore the laws discriminate against men”.
That the Associated Press runs this claptrap is just another indication of just how corrupt the Corrupt Liberal Media is.
“God says world to end tomorrow: Women and minorities hardest hit.”
The 3 to 1 ratio of black crimes closely matches the FBI data showing blacks commit three times as many crimes as whites.
Appears the young blacks are acting as their elders have been doing.
It’s like the old Dilbert cartoon I once saw, where his blowhard boss comes out and says (to paraphrase), “I have some deeply disturbing news. We just got a report back, and it seems that 40%—nearly half— of all sick days are taken on either a Monday or a Friday. It seems like some people are gaming the system in order to get an extra long weekend. We will no longer be accepting calling in sick on Mondays and Fridays.”
In the last picture they mumble to each other, “Do you think it would matter if we point out that that’s 40% of the work week?”
“Mark my words - this is the next big Democratic Party project: to allow juvenile miscreants to beat, maim or kill at will, as long as the perps are black or Hispanic.”
Yuppers - and Americans know this and have bought arms accordingly.
I remember reading a few years back, that Ann Coulter got a lot of flack for pointing out, that minorities DON’T commit a higher per capita number of crimes, when you adjust for singe parent (I belive she said mother) households. When adjusted for single parents households she said they were right on the money with white populations. I believe it was on the view, but don’t remember for certain.
Racist! Just because more Hispanics and Blacks are involved in crimes than whites does NOT allow you to actually, you know report on it. Who the heck do you think you are anyway!
funny, no mention of these groups. Hmmmmm.
Maybe? The punishments fit the “harsher” crimes.
We have one, yes one black student in our school, and he pulled a knife on a teacher. The only student arrested this year. Therefore,100% of the black students at the school were arrested this year compared to zero percent whites. That stat doesn’t mean a thing.
Come on Whitey, you are not trying hard enough and are way behind of your quote of bad guys! Get a grip people... You have to do something to have the police called on you...
