CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS) — The state school board learned Wednesday West Virginia’s quick-to-suspend disciplinary practices are disproportionally impacting black, poor, foster, homeless and disabled youth. A new school discipline report shows a negative impact on the education of 28,000 students suspended statewide in 2022.

The impact of those suspensions has left West Virginia with a problem of epic proportions.
