What we can do right now: What needs further research?

Felecia M. Briscoe, Nathern S. Okilwa, Muhammad Khalifa

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter sums up the previous chapters beginning with personal life stories of how school-to-prison pipeline (STPP) disastrously affects the lives of students, most especially African American youth, Chicano youth, working-class students, and those with disabilities. From there we moved to the institutional level where the authors described factors in schools that contribute to the STPP. Also at the institutional level, contributing authors critically examined current approaches in schools, which were designed to help dismantle the STPP. Finally, from policy prospective the contributing authors explained how some existing policies could be used differently to disrupt the STPP. After each summary, we present bullet points suggesting what we (school stakeholders-leaders, faculty, etc., and policy makers) can do right now to disrupt the STPP.
