The School-to-Prison Pipeline
Structuring Legal Reform
“Increasingly, we must understand the production of structural disadvantage through a systems lens that focuses on the relationships between critical institutions rather than viewing them as distinct concerns. This incisive new work targets the interface between our K‒12 educational system and our juvenile and criminal justice systems with a fresh, unflinching account that is invaluable to lawyers, organizers and researchers alike.”
—John A. Powell, Executive Director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Williams Chair in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, Moritz College of Law, Ohio State University
“Fills a much‒needed gap in the school‒to‒prison pipeline literature. There is very little information about legal strategies to interrupt the pipeline when you encounter reticent policy‒makers. This book provides just that, and covers all of the bases for doing so. As such, it is an invaluable resource for legal advocates working in the education and juvenile justice fields.”
—Randee J. Waldman, Barton Juvenile Defender Clinic, Emory Law
"This startling book begins with the insight that criminal justice processes have come to dominate U.S. social institutions . . . this useful, in-depth guide to education and juvenile justice reform would complement more sociological texts that explore cultural or societal aspects of the pipeline."
—J.S. Montgomery, Choice
"This book is a real eye-opener. For anyone involved in any way with educating our youth, it is a must-read."
