Tolerance zero policy for schools end up treating children like criminals. This needs to change.
The goals of Ending the Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track are:
To document and expose the use of zero tolerance and other harsh disciplinary policies and the “School-to-Prison Pipeline";
To develop and implement school discipline reforms on the local level that will serve as models for other communities;
To strengthen the capacity of the youth and parents involved in this work to become engaged citizens and agents of change;
To impact the national conversation about this issue in order to facilitate broader reforms.
