Education On Lockdown: The Schoolhouse To Jailhouse Track

March 24, 2005

Advancement Project released Education on Lockdown: The Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track, a follow-up report to Derailed: The Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track. The colloborative report further investigates the nationwide trend towards using zero tolerance polices in schools as a "take no prisoners" approach to dealing with the most trivial acts of student misconduct. The report also examines how students of color are disproportionately affected by these policies. Three school systems, Chicago Public Schools, Denver Public Schools, and Palm Beach County Public Schools, are profiled as an example of how the national trends are being enacted at local levels.
