pbs/Suspension Stories

Saturday morning at 7:30am on WCLK Social Worker Dr. Judi Crocker-Billingsley engages with the community about the issues surrounding what is called the School To Prison Pipeline--the American tendency in recent times to adopt policies and practices that push our nation's schoolchildren, especially our most at-risk children, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. This pipeline reflects the prioritization of incarceration over education. We live in an era of Zero Tolerance Policies, when schoolyard fights end up in arrests and expulsions.
