The School-to-Prison Pipeline

For some K–12 students—particularly students of color—classrooms are not places for learning but places that push them out of school and into the criminal justice system.

The cover story of the Spring 2013 issue examines how educators can recognize and dismantle policies and practices that favor incarceration over education. A related feature story explains how classroom teachers’ daily decisions can divert students from the school-to-prison pipeline.

Other critical topics addressed in this Spring issue include prejudicial beliefs against dialects other than Standard English and the separation of church and state in school athletics.
