You can’t talk about the school-to-prison pipeline, or how to dismantle it, without talking about race. Because of this, the Youth Justice Project produced a Racial Equity Report Card for every school district in the state. The Report Cards use district-specific data to provide a snapshot of a community’s school-to-prison pipeline, including any racial disproportionalities that exist in the pipeline.
What does the data reveal for CHCCS and how does it compare to other districts? Even more importantly, what can CHCCS do to address its stark racial inequities and dismantle its pipeline?
Peggy Nicholson and Ricky Watson are the Co-Directors of the Youth Justice Project of the Southern Coalition for Social Justice. The Youth Justice Project works to ensure equity, fairness, and justice for youth in high-quality education, juvenile, and criminal systems.
