Look Inside the Book

A trenchant and wide-ranging look at this alarming national trend, Disrupting the School-to-Prison Pipeline is unsparing in its account of the problem while pointing in the direction of meaningful and much-needed reforms.


The national crisis posed by the school-to-prison pipeline calls on us to go beyond conventional policy, funding, leadership, and action. As this book clearly shows, disrupting the pipeline from end to end will require a complete reorientation of our values, systems, and practices, so as to construct new educational rights and opportunities for young people. — Maisie Chin, executive director/cofounder, Community Asset Development Redefining Education (CADRE)

In an era dominated by a focus on academic accountability, it is critical to understand that academic engagement and school discipline cannot be disentangled. Punitive and exclusionary practices in our schools and juvenile justice system threaten the life chances of too many American children and youth, especially those who have been historically marginalized. This book shines a light on the threats posed by the school-to-prison pipeline, the experiences of those who have been its victims, and strategies for disrupting and deconstructing that pipeline. — Russ Skiba, director, The Equity Project, Indiana University
