Utilizing all the Tools in your Toolbox to Dismantle the School-to-Prison Pipeline

Nancy Potter, Leigh Loman & Ashley Sawyer
The Education Law Center
Saturday, 11:15 am to 12:45 pm -- Rm. A-239

This panel will focus on multi-systemic, community driven solutions to dismantle the School to Prison Pipeline. Zero-tolerance, aggressive policing in schools, and other extreme school discipline practices are pushing students out of school and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems, fueling systemic inequalities and disparate educational outcomes. The Education Law Center will highlight how they are utilizing community engagement, local collaboration, state courts and federal civil rights complaints to achieve education justice in Pennsylvania.
