“Inspiring, Achieving and Celebrating Inclusion”
“Where justice is denied, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.” — Frederick Douglass

The Anti-Defamation League defines the School-to-Prison Pipeline as “school policies and procedures that drive schoolchildren into a pathway that begins in school and ends in the criminal justice system. Behavior that once led to a trip to the principal’s office and detention, such as school uniform violations, profanity and ‘talking back,’ now often leads to suspension, expulsion, and/or arrest. Today, largely as a result of ‘zero tolerance’ policies, 3.3 million children are suspended or expelled from school each year, double the rate of the 1970s,” with black, disabled, and LGBTQ youth bearing the brunt of the disparity.
This Culture Quest will explain the school-to-prison pipeline and how to inoculate our youth against it. It will also explore the laws and rights that protect our students and caregivers against inequitable and unjust treatment, and the ways in which they can effectively organize and navigate the educational system to the benefit of our youth and educational equity and justice.
