School to Prison Pipeline: Understanding the Relationship Between School Discipline, Dropout, and Incarceration

This is a 2-hour webinar. The school-to-prison pipeline is an epidemic that is plaguing schools across the nation. Far too often, students are suspended, expelled or even arrested for minor offenses that leave visits to the principal’s office a thing of the past. Statistics reflect that these policies disproportionately target students of color and those with a history of abuse, neglect, poverty or learning disabilities. The purpose of this webinar is to begin to examine the root causes and repercussions of the school-to-prison pipeline on today’s youth, understand the impact race, gender, and poverty have on this epidemic, and empower participants to make changes in their schools and communities.

This webinar does not have any offerings for this semester.
