What Is the School-to-Prison Pipeline, and How Do We Disrupt It?

Understanding how school discipline policies can contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline is essential for educators and families. Harsh punishments, automatic out-of-class time and police involvement for discipline can push young people out of classrooms and into the criminal legal system. But educators, parents and caregivers can help to change this harmful system by advocating for and implementing practices that prioritize mental health and well-being. 

We offer this new resource page that highlights LFJ articles and content to open dialogue, shift practices and foster change to benefit all young people.
