What is the school-to-prison pipeline, how do schools and educators contribute to it, and how can we work to disrupt it? This four-day workshop will focus on understanding the system of mass incarceration and its relationship to schooling. We will explore: (1) the historical roots of mass incarceration in the U.S., (2) its current manifestations via schools and how these intersect with discipline (especially its impact on the over disciplining of Black boys and girls), and (3) examples of educational policies and practices that attempt to disrupt the pipeline.
In this workshop, students will:
- Explore the historical underpinnings of mass incarceration and how incarceration exists in the present day.
- Understand the role that schools play in the school-to-prison pipeline and which students are made most vulnerable.
- Investigate efforts among researchers, policy makers, activists, and educators in disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline.
