Course Detail: OEDSCHPIPE - Diversity Seminar - The School to Prison Pipeline and Its Impact on School Communities
The College of Education and Office of Equity and Diversity invite you to a discussion on the school-to-prison pipeline (STPP). This talk will address the STPP and its connection to practices such as school discipline. The speakers will use Critical Race Theory's critique of liberalism and colorblindness and their connections to school based policies and policing. Time will be spent addressing school arrests and their legal ramifications; systemic barriers to equity and points of entry to the STPP; and policies and practices that increase STPP in some school communities. Additionally, the speakers will share national and local efforts to address the STPP.
