Rodd Monts & Mark Fancher: In School-On Track-Out of Trouble: Keeping Children Out of the Pipeline to Prison
Rodd Monts and Mark Fancher at the Michigan Leadership Summit on School-Justice Partnerships: Keeping Kids in School and Out of the Justice System, held September 18-19, 2013 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The school-to-prison pipeline refers to the national trend of discipline that results in students being suspended, ticketed, expelled or arrested in rates that are disproportionate and/or excessive. They examine the impact of school discipline and exclusions, the use of alternatives, and provide recommendations for improving climates and keeping children in school.
