The number of students arrested in school in Connecticut has declined in recent years, but many of those arrests were avoidable, according to a report from Connecticut Voices for Children, an advocacy group.

The number of students arrested in school declined from 3,396 to 3,183 from 2007 to 2010, but many were arrested for such behaviors as insubordination that might not normally be considered criminal, the report says. It also notes that 59 percent of schools had higher arrest rates for black students than for white students and makes recommendations for improvement.
