What is the impact of suspensions on students’ academic progress?

A new article in Chalkbeat summarizes the results of several recent studies in the US on the effect of suspensions on academic progress and test scores.  While the results overall seem to speak against suspensions, which makes sense, it is interesting that there are no studies that speak to the impact on student behaviour after suspension. Although we likely know the answer to that question too, it should be addressed along with academics when considering zero tolerance or suspensions.
