Genrich-Rusling Room

Do our schooling policies and practices favor incarceration over education for youth of color and youth with disabilities? Join us for a discussion about the school-to-prison pipeline problem in our community. In this Spring Forum hosted by the Urban Teaching and Leadership Program at the University of Rochester's Warner School of Education and Human Development, five panelists will discuss the school-to-prison pipeline. Panelists will share personal, professional, and community experiences that inform their knowledge about this topic and also share strategies and recommendations for disrupting and rerouting the school-to-prison pipeline. A question and answer session will follow. 
 
Please join us for this important discussion!
