ED 6430 - Interrupting the School to Prison Pipeline - The Future of Black and Brown Boys in the USA


The goal of this course is to deepen our understanding of issues related to the construction of the school to prison pipeline. The issues that the course will address are inequality, discipline polices, systematic criminalization of youth, the achievement gap, and workings of the prison industrial president complex. The course will also consider the pipeline first and foremost as a manifestation of “structural racism”. (3 Credits) Meets MED and CAGS concentration requirement: Curriculum and Instruction
