This PowerPoint presentation supports the storyline and topics from the workbook "Five Steps to Avoid the School to Prison Pipeline." State governments are systematically dismantling public schools in at-risk/low income/low performing school districts. All while building jails and privatizing prisons at an alarming rate. This isn't just happening in Michigan. Pay attention to what's going on. The workbook that this PowerPoint supports helps to open conversations with youth around the school to prison pipeline traps so that youth can better recognize them and take these traps more seriously.
