School to Prison Pipeline

We need to stop the School to Prison Pipeline now! It would be great to see more protesting on diversity and the current school to prison pipeline.

There is a serious lack of awareness on this issue, it is a systemic problem. In order for real progress to happen we need to start teaching children that All lives Matter. We need to teach them that being different does not mean that they should be secluded or restrained. Parents need to know that they have rights reguardless of their child’s race, religion or disability.

I found the following websites helpful in learning more about this important issue:

Pages 142-150 are important for NYS and NYC
