Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected

Black Girls Matter: Pushed Out, Overpoliced and Underprotected, a new report by the African American Policy Forum and Columbia Law School's Center for Intersectionality and Social Policy Studies, combines data on discipline disparities in New York City and Boston schools with findings from focus groups with young women of color to shine a spotlight on the unique challenges girls of color face in classrooms across the country. The report finds that girls of color face much harsher school discipline than their white peers but are excluded from current efforts to address the school-to-prison pipeline. It also recommends policies and interventions to address the challenges facing these girls.
