Ending the School to Prison Pipeline

This program was recorded on September 20th, 2021.

A juvenile record is a gateway to mass incarceration. How do we stop the school-to-prison pipeline? An average of $33,000 is spent on an incarcerated individual. Imagine if we could reinvest those dollars into our children and their education. Furthermore, children who go to juvenile detention are not the only ones affected. Together, we can create new pipelines for the success of all children and our communities. Dr. Artika Tyner will share information about the school to prison pipeline and introduce 3 key strategies for ending the school to prison pipeline. Dr. Tyner is a passionate educator, lawyer, author, sought-after speaker, and advocate for justice. In recognition of her leadership and service, she is the recipient of more than two dozen awards that include: Women in Business, American Small Business Champion, International Educator Citizen, and American Bar Association Difference Makers.
