about this item

This book offers a research and comparison-driven look at the school to prison pipeline, its racial dynamics, the connections to mass incarceration, and our flawed educational climate—and suggests practical remedies for change.

• Provides readers with an understanding of the realities of the school to prison pipeline—its history, development, and racialized context and meaning—as well as the continued significance of race and other socially differentiating factors in shaping public policy and everyday decisions regarding "deviance,""discipline," and social control

• Examines the under-explored dynamic that places a predominantly white teaching staff in schools that are predominantly schools of color, and considers the roles that stereotypes and cultural conflicts play in the labeling of students

• Suggests viable options for action towards dismantling the institutionalized racism revealed by the school to prison pipeline via both policy reforms and transformational alternatives

• Presents information relevant to a range of college courses, such as education, sociology of deviance, sociology of education, youth studies, legal studies, criminal justice, and racial/ethnic studies
