Dismantling the Pipeline: A Dialogue on the School to Prison Pipeline
12 PM EDT
We've reached a point in history through globalization where the country can no longer afford to well educate a select few and yet leave the masses to their own devices. The nation's global competitiveness now depends on all students being well educated as the global economy is now one that depends on innovation and knowledge. Statistics report that students, particularly students of color, are being suspended and expelled at rates higher than any time before in our nation's history. This teleconference will discuss the issue from three district perspectives and offer young lawyers the opportunity to learn more about the problem and how they can make a difference.
