Abstract
The school-prison-pipeline is a most ironic development. Right where it is most important to help children move toward productive citizenship, toward cooperation and support of others, toward a thirst for knowledge of the issues and questions before us every day, some students find themselves completely alienated from the institution that is charged with educating them, singled out for surveillance and discipline, confronted with police officers for in-school infractions, and caught in the juvenile justice system, which, as a different kind of school, prepares them for a life of crime and for the adult criminal system.
