dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to examine different types of offenses committed by educators, to examine how these different offenses are punished and whether there are differences among gender, race, age, and certificate groups. Methods. For this study, existing data was used from the Texas Education Agency for 582 educators that were disciplined for misconduct in the 2012-2013 school year. Results. Males, black educators, and younger educators are more likely to offend. They are not, however, treated most harshly when they are disciplined. There are some offenses committed more often by males, younger educators, and educators who have held their credentials for a shorter amount of time. Conclusion. Additional research is needed in this sparsely studied field to help further understand why some groups are more likely to offend or commit certain offenses, and whether there is any disparity in the manner in which educators are disciplined. en_US
