Black girls in America are 2-6 times more likely than white girls to receive corporal punishment, be suspended, physically restrained, and arrested in schools. Based on the award-winning book of the same name by Monique W. Morris, Ed.D, PUSHOUT explores these troubling trends and their impact on a future generation of leaders. Filled with testimonials from students and experts alike, PUSHOUT gives crucial context to this crisis while providing a roadmap for how our educational system can provide a positive, rather than punitive, response to behaviors that are often misunderstood or misrepresented.
