The simplest explanation (Ockham's razor) is that black students act out more than whites, hispanics or asians. That would also account for the proportional disparity in violent crimes and even traffic stops. And that explanation is certainly correct. Keeping the hoodlums in school just makes it harder for all the other students.

"When kids are out of school, they’re not learning.” When the disruptive students are not removed, same result.
