8/2/2020 • “Suspendable and Expendable, Kicking Out and Throwing Away Black Girls: An Analysis of a School District’s Policies and Practices” by Altheria Caldera

Today’s #AntiAbleistComposition feature is “Suspendable and Expendable, Kicking Out and Throwing Away Black Girls: An Analysis of a School District’s Policies and Practices” by Altheria Caldera. The essay is published in Texas Education Review.

From the article: “Limited scholarship exists focusing specifically on the effects of school policies and practices on Black girls (Hines & Wilmot, 2018; Ispa-Landa, 2017; Kemp-Graham, 2017; Wun, 2016a; Wun, 2016b). My work broadens this literature by focusing on how Fort Worth Independent School District’s educational policies and practices impact Black girls. This project is distinctive in its use of document analysis as a qualitative inquiry methodology used to analyze district policies.”
