Abstract

The CRDC data on school corporal punishment summarized above are collected as part of OCR’s mandate to ensure that no protected groups of students are being discriminated against in the public schools. As noted in Chap. 2, the CRDC is conducted to monitor possible discrimination in educational practices by race, gender, and disability status (Office for Civil Rights in Regulations enforced by the Office for Civil Rights, 2011).
