Saturday, July 30 at 7:30 a.m. during Dr. Judi The People's Advocate on Jazz 91.9 WCLK , Social Worker Dr. Judi Crocker-Billingsley engages with the community about the issues surrounding what is called the School To Prison Pipeline.  The  trend is an American mechanism 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.
