How you can begin to challenge the damaging policies and programs which feed into the school to prison pipeline for children in your community.

THE SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE STRATEGY A 2007 study by the Advancement Project and the Power U Center for Social Change says that for every 100 students who were suspended, 15 were Black, 7.9 were American Indian, 6.8 were Latino and 4.8 were white. The same study reports that the U.S. spends almost $70 billion annually on incarceration, probation and parole. This number lends itself to a 127% funding increase for incarceration between 1987-2007. Compare that to a 21% increase in funding for higher education in the same 20-year span. Local police have a presence in almost every American mid and high school in America where the student demographic is above 30% Black. That is how it begins.
