Highlighting that black Caribbean pupils are three times more likely to be permanently excluded from school than their white counterparts, this report argues that Conservative Party proposals to scrap excluded students’ right of appeal could disproportionately impact on black pupils.

The aim of the report,  which contains essays by exclusions experts such as Diane Abbott MP, and professors Val Gillies and Cecile Wright, is to outline the considerations needed when developing exclusions policy, as well as highlighting policy proposals to tackle exclusion levels.
