Civil Rights Data Collection Reveals Educational Disparities Across U.S.
According to a new study released by the Civil Rights Data Collection, several educational disparities still exist across the nation.

It was also found that 48 percent of black students were suspended from preschool more than once.

Finally, fewer than half of American Indian and Native-Alaskan high school students have full access to the range of math and science courses required for college.
