I fear that data will only become harder to come by under the Trump administration. Juvenile justice advocates had to fight for it from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights even under President Obama. Now, we have a Secretary of Education that refuses to stand up to the president as he rolls back civil rights protections. Under Betsy DeVos’s leadership, access to data is Dr. Morris’s gravest concern.She doesn’t necessarily need the Department of Education to be an outspoken ally in her quest to end school pushout: She just needs their data. She has allies elsewhere.
