Symposium Video Now Available

School to Prison Pipeline

Videos of our recent symposium, the School-to-Prison-Pipeline, are now available for online viewing.

The School-to-Prison Pipeline refers to systemic policies and practices that push our nation’s schoolchildren, especially at-risk children, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. It reflects a prioritization of incarceration over education, particularly for children of color.

This one-day conference brought together attorneys, researchers, students, and other advocates from across the nation and from the diverse fields of education law, racial justice, civil rights, juvenile justice, and disabilities law, among others. A large portion of the conference was devoted to breakout sessions, permitting participants to gather in small groups to brainstorm and develop promising new strategies for this work.
