Speaker Series Sequel - School to Child Welfare/Prison Pipeline

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 9:00 am to 11:00 am

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

The school-to-prison pipeline is the disproportionate tendency of children of color to become incarcerated or placed in foster care because of harsh educational, discipline, and policing policies and practices. 

Join us for a discussion on the impacts and uneven application of school disturbance laws, zero tolerance policies, and school reporting of absences (educational neglect). We will also discuss alternatives based in restorative practices that have the potential to deepen children's engagement with their education rather than disrupting it.

Moderator: Caroline Preston, Senior Editor, The Hechinger Report
