The term “school-to-prison pipeline” broadly describes the phenomenon whereby youth are pushed out of the classroom through overly punitive discipline practices and into the juvenile justice system. Session participants will hear from local and state-level stakeholders from the Education/Justice Partnership, a collaborative body of the New Jersey Council on Juvenile Justice System Improvement regarding their efforts to strengthen the collaborative relationship between educators and juvenile justice professionals and efforts to implement school-based initiatives. Ideas and strategies for leadership and collaboration to reduce school arrests and develop a system of care to assess and treat chronically-disruptive students and to improve graduation rates and school and community safety will be shared.
