Schools, as families, can be authorative, permissive, supportive, or laisez faire. As you might be able to guess, schools that are more “authorative” have higher suspension rates. However, schools that are authoritive and laisez faire have a larger suspension gap between black and white students; with black students being suspended more often. To quote, Gregory et. al., “[s]chools in which the students experience neither a strong sense of support by teachers nor high expectations of academic achievement appear to be most vulnerable”. Like parents, schools need to hold high expectations and provide the support needed for students to reach those expectations. Simply telling someone to do something doesn’t assure success as much as showing, modeling, and guiding that person.
