The Struggle for Educational Justice
1) Zero Tolerance Policies (Skiba and Peterson, 2000 and the ABA): "Redefining students as criminals."
2) Excessive Policing (Kupchik, 2010 and the ACLU): "Security guards, law enforcement officers, and surveillance technologies as methods to deter students from misbehavior."
3) High Stakes Testing (Nichols and Berliner, 2007): Federal funding withheld to schools who score low, which leads to the pushing out of students labeled as "underachievers."
Practices that Fuel the Pipeline
The pushing of students, especially those with marginal identities, out of the public school system and into the criminal justice system.
This pipeline is the result of the education system's failure to meet the educational and social needs of students who have been marginalized and isolated within the school (Kim et al, 2010).
Black Youth Organized To Protect their Black Peers against the Spook Hunters
“Slauson / Gladiators” labeled as Gangs
City of Los Angeles had counselors go into schools to teach ideology of "Black Gangs" being a problem
Labeled as hate groups (eg. Black Panther Party)

Before prison expansion
1) Empower youth of color who are or have been targets of the school to prison pipeline by focusing on their educational and social needs.
2) Assist formerly incarcerated students who are struggling to re-adapt and reintegrate into school.
3) Fostering consciousness and resistance through the use of critical pedagogy.
4) Parent, youth, and community involvement.
