From the Paper:

"According to surveys administered in relation to minority students and the effectiveness of discipline, there is much to be lacked in this area. Poor methods of administering discipline is resulting in minority students who are expelled being left in the streets and turning to the lifestyle of the streets in order to attempt survival. There is some specific element or bit of vital knowledge that is lacking and which is crucial in gaining knowledge of in relation to the methods that is being used by schools in the meting out of punishment and discipline to minority students. In the majority of studies recently performed in relation to poor academics and poor behavior the concentration has been on standardized test scores instead of the real issue of excessive punishment being administered. The fact that these students have difficulty comprehending and functioning in the classroom is clear enough evidence that something more than draconian discipline methods need to be considered. Delinquency is more prevalent among minorities. Bowman (2001) Casella (2003) found that the escalation of delinquency occurs when school experiences are of a negative nature particularly during the junior high school and high school years."
