Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools - even as tiny preschoolers

Black children represent about 18% of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once. Black students of all ages are suspended and expelled at a rate that's three times higher than that of white children. Even as boys receive more than two-thirds of suspensions, black girls are suspended at higher rates than girls of any other race or most boys.
