ASU Center for the Study of Race and Democracy

presents a forum at Glendale Community College

THE PRISON PIPELINE

In the United States, two major institutions guide youth on the journey to adulthood: school and prison.

The U.S., the country with the highest incarceration rate in the world, spends $88,000 annually on each incarcerated child, while only $10,500 per child on education. Systemically racialized policies criminalize minor school violations and funnel students out of public schools and into the criminal justice system. Students of color are especially vulnerable and most often affected by “zero-tolerance” policies and discriminatory applications of discipline.

Engage with experts, community leaders, and peers as we examine the school-to-prison pipeline and how to change systems that prioritize incarceration over education.

This is the second forum in a series addressing the theme of "Difficult Dialogues."
