(UNDATED) - Indiana schools suspended more than 75,000 students during the 2013-14 school year, according to new federal data.

Peter Balonon-Rosen or WFIU/WTIU news reports, there's a lot to dig through in numbers released this week from the U.S. Department of Education, but one thing jumps out: Indiana schools use suspension more often than most of the nation's schools.

In general, U.S. schools send home about one in 16 students. Indiana schools choose exclusionary discipline more often, sending home one in 14 students.

Boys, students of color and students with disabilities absorb the brunt of Indiana's 75,000 suspensions.
