Community Meeting: Ending the School-to-Prison Pipeline

By | 2012-04-11T10:13:23+00:00 April 11th, 2012|Blog, Education, Youth Justice|

Students who are disciplined through suspensions or expulsion don’t just miss valuable instructional time during their time away from the classroom. It also perpetuates their academic failures and can even lead to withdrawal from school altogether. Research indicates there is a correlation between high suspension rates, increased achievement gaps, drop-out rates and even entrance to the juvenile justice system.

So, instead of disciplining our children in school by pulling them from the classroom, let’s turn to Positive Behavior Intervention Supports and put an end to the school-to-prison pipeline.

To learn more, join the Children’s Law Center for a community meeting at the Housing Authority of Bowling Green on Thursday, April 19th. Registration begins at 8:30AM and the event will last from 9:00am-12:30PM. To attend, contact Ashley Payne at or 270-202-4209.
