What: School-to-Prison Pipeline Workshop: As defined by the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU), the S2PP is “a nationwide system of local, state and federal education and public safety policies that pushes students out of school and into the criminal justice system. This system disproportionately targets youth of color and youth with disabilities. Inequities in areas such as school discipline, policing practices, high-stakes testing and the prison industry contribute to the pipeline.” As suggested by that definition, the S2PP is a complicated and sprawling system, and this workshop only begins to interrogate how it works, what it does, and who it affects.
