Abstract

During the last decade, public debate about exclusionary discipline has intensified. Some have raised concerns about the role that school reforms have played because the increasing market-based and test-based school accountability could affect school discipline in unintended ways. This paper studies the effect of the post-Katrina New Orleans school reforms on school discipline, as measured by out-of-school suspensions and expulsions. Using a weighted generalized difference-in-differences strategy, this paper compares the change in discipline rates in New Orleans schools with that of a matched comparison group of schools drawn from other hurricane-affected districts. The results indicate that the school reforms temporarily increased the rate of out-of-school suspensions and expulsions three years after the reforms initiated. This increase diminished a couple of years later, when the reforms stabilized, returning school discipline in New Orleans back to its pre-Katrina levels.
