Event description

Description

Our first Culture Quest on this topic sold out and many others have requested that we host another so that they can attend. This is your opportunity! Only 30 seats available!

“Data from the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights shows that black students are suspended and expelled at a rate three times greater than their white peers. Similarly, students with disabilities are more than twice as likely to receive out-of-school suspensions as students with no disabilities and LGBTQ youth are much more likely than their peers to be suspended or expelled.”

This Culture Quest will explain the emergence of the School-to-Prison Pipeline, how it works, and how to inoculate our youth against it. It will also explore the laws and rights that protect our students and caregivers against inequitable and unjust treatment, and the ways in which they can effectively organize and navigate the educational system to the benefit of our youth and educational equity and justice.
