Summary "A trenchant and wide-ranging look at this alarming national trend, Disrupting the School-to-Prison Pipeline is unsparing in its account of the problem while pointing in the direction of meaningful and much-needed reforms. The "school-to-prison pipeline" has received much attention in the education world over the past few years. A fast-growing and disturbing development, it describes a range of circumstances whereby "children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems." Scholars, educators, parents, students, and organizers across the country have pointed to this shocking trend, insisting that it be identified and understood--and that it be addressed as an urgent matter by the larger community. This new volume from the Harvard Educational Review features essays from scholars, educators, students, and community activists who are working to disrupt, reverse, and redirect the pipeline. Alongside these authors are contributions from the people most affected: youth and adults who have been incarcerated, or whose lives have been shaped by the school-to-prison pipeline. Through stories, essays, and poems, these individuals add to the book's comprehensive portrait of how our education and justice systems function--and how they fail to serve the interests of many young people."--Publisher's website.
