A study by the Advancement Project, a national racial justice group, found minority students in Denver's public schools were suspended, expelled or ticketed by police 70% more often than white students between 2000 and 2004. The report's authors found the number of expelled students rose from 116 in 2000-2001 to 146 in 2003-2004, with 53% of the expulsions in 2003-2004 occurring for nonviolent acts.
