A Conversation On The School-To-Prison Pipeline

Co-Sponsored by Loyola University Chicago Schools of Law and Education

Join us at Loyola University Chicago School of Law on November 14, 2018, for a conversation on the school-to-prison pipeline. The term describes the experiences of young persons who are “pushed out” of school and into the juvenile/criminal justice system through practices like suspension, expulsion, and school-based arrest. The school-to-prison pipeline disproportionality impacts vulnerable student populations, including African-American students, those with disabilities, and LGBTQ students. Illinois recently enacted sweeping school discipline reform legislation designed to address this problem. Through interdisciplinary dialogue, professor Miranda Johnson, J.D., M.P.A. (Loyola University Chicago School of Law) and Dr. Pamela Fenning, Ph.D., ABPP (Loyola University Chicago School of Education) will discuss potential solutions from a legal, public policy, mental health, and school practice perspective. Pizza lunch will be provided.
