AMST 265 - The Schools-to-Prison Pipeline

Cross-Listed as EDUC 265  
This course offers an introductory exploration of the “school-to-prison pipeline,” a trend that funnels youth out of U.S. public schools and into the juvenile corrections system. We will study how this pipeline is the result of a confluence of historical, political, and cultural factors; first and foremost, how the pipeline acts as a manifestation of structural racism. We will look to frameworks of human rights, legal rights, and social justice organizing as models of articulating and resisting the pipeline. Prerequisite(s): AMST 101  AMST 103 , or  AMST 110  Alternate spring semesters. (4 Credits)
