School-to-Prison Pipeline

When schools respond to routine discipline problems with law enforcement, they lay the foundation for a school-to-prison pipeline that can derail students' education and employment futures. The Shriver Center just released Handcuffs in Hallways, a report on policing in Chicago Public Schools. This report by community justice staff attorney Michelle Mbekeani-Wiley recommends that Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Police Department, and community members work together to define the role of law enforcement officers in schools.

For more on the school-to-prison pipeline and its disproportionate effect on students of color and students with disabilities, check out this featured collection of articles from the Clearinghouse Review archive.
