Schubert Center’s Amy Fisher investigates school policing, race and ability in an educational book

Amy Fisher, postdoctoral scholar and research associate at the Schubert Center for Child Studies, was featured in a recently published book about discipline-related inequality among students with disabilities, primarily students and children of color. 

Discipline Disparities among Students With Disabilities was published by Teachers College Press in May 2022. Fisher authored a chapter on “School Discipline at the Intersection of Race and Ability: Examining the Role of Police in Schools.” Since its publication, the book has been hailed as a “road map for the next decade” in research and policy change initiatives that strive to end discriminatory practices in the educational system.
