School to Prison Pipeline

A short video on the connections between the education and justice systems: Book 'Em: undereducated, overincarcerated

The following documentary tackles similar issues.

"It's generally agreed that the problems lie in the system, not the people. I'm not saying the teachers, because teachers are just as much suppressed as the kids are in the system. How many teachers have attempted to speak out against the system? The system of education, if you speak out, you're crushed."

"School systems are not keeping up with the times and what that does is create desperate people and some of them become criminals. Our school system punishes people for making mistakes. The only way a human being learns is by making a mistake so it starts in our school system where we punish people for making mistakes instead of encouraging them to make mistakes and learn from them. Well the criminal system operates exactly the same way. So the school system microcosm is only a reflection of a tougher system called a prison system."

And finally some news clips of children abused at school by the police.
