maybe i'm reading this wrong, but this means with two schools, one predominantly african-american, the other predominantly non-black (i.e. asian, latino, caucasian), where one school is vandalized, both schools must suspend or discipline an equal number of students, even though no vandalism ("regardless of the behavior") took place at the other school.
does this make ANY sense?
