The School-to-Prison Pipeline remains a major concern across our country. Defined as a systematic way of syphoning children out of public schools and funneling them into the juvenile and criminal justice system, many civil rights lawyers regard the School-to-Prison Pipeline as the most critical civil rights issue facing our country today. The School-to-Prison Pipeline has a disproportionate impact on minority students. The ABA has hosted town halls across to country on this issue and has developed a policy resolution and report explaining the problem and proposing solutions. This conference follows up the 2015 symposium and town hall on the School-to-Prison Pipeline in Indian Country.
While there is still a long way to go, solutions from legislative policy to community MOUs to restorative justice are being implemented nationwide to reverse the School-to-Prison Pipeline. This event will focus on the solutions being put into practice and how they are positively impacting juveniles who are disproportionately affected by the School-to-Prison Pipeline. This event will provide an overview of the problem, bring together individuals to discuss pipeline concerns, experts who have developed successful programs and projects across the country to address pipeline issues, and discuss models developed by tribes to solve this issue.
