    Black Children Kicked Out Of Preschool And Into Prison Pipeline


    There is a big problem in our educational system, and it is persistent



    Teacher Bias and Low Expectations Are Part of the Problem

    “Teacher bias” bears responsibility in this dynamic, according to the white paper. “An African American student who exhibits disruptive behavior, even if it is the same behavior exhibited by the White peers, might be perceived as more disruptive because of teacher bias” (2015) ...

    Push back...more Black parents need to have a presence in their children's schools and know their rights. I already know some will blame this problem on the younger generation of single parents who were never taught or learned "good" parenting skills so our children and grandchildren are at risk in a system that stereotypes them, tracks them to fail and throws them away where they will likely become another negative statistic in society.

    In spite of racial oppression, healthy parenting skills can be taught and learned. For Black families that would need to include teaching and nurturing healthy self-esteem, confidence and courage to stand up for what they believe is best for them against a system determined to destroy, abuse or use them for greed and personal gain of others.

    Parents must have these same characteristics in order to pass them on to future generations. our children need to know parents can be trusted and depended on to protect them, love them and even correct them.

    I don't mean for this to sound philosophical, but practical. We need better and more practitioners of healthy parenting that includes activism for changing systems that assault Black people.

    The student is not the problem. It's the teachers, the principal, the vice principal, and then parent. Their focus is on those students labelled trouble makers.
    With zero tolerance several students were/are being suspended.
    I went to meet with the vice principal one day and my sons file was in his desk drawer. I asked why is my sons file in your drawer instead of the file cabinet.
    He told the truth and said "this is where I keep the trouble makers". If my son was a trouble maker why wasn't anyone telling me.
    Liers.

    In the spirit of thread consolidation

    Discipline and the School-To-Prison Pipeline (2016)

    I. Introduction
    The school-to-prison pipeline disproportionately places students of color, including those who identify as LGBTQ, have disabilities, and/or are English Language Learners, into the criminal justice system for minor school infractions and disciplinary matters, subjecting them to harsher punishments than their white peers for the same behaviors. The school-to-prison pipeline diminishes their educational opportunities and life trajectories. All educators – which includes every school employee – are key to ending the school-to-prison pipeline.

    SCHOOL-TO-PRISON PIPELINE

    The ACLU is committed to challenging the “school-to-prison pipeline,” a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Many of these children have learning disabilities or histories of poverty, abuse, or neglect, and would benefit from additional educational and counseling services. Instead, they are isolated, punished, and pushed out.

    U.S. Public Schools Are Suspending Millions of Students, With Little Reward

    The Prejudice Problem
    Problems also arise when officials apply zero-tolerance policies arbitrarily, and with racial bias.
    In the U.S., black students are three times more likely than white students to be suspended, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Males, American Indians, Alaska Natives and disabled students are also overrepresented in the suspended population. Craven says there is no evidence that students of color misbehave at higher rates than their white peers. In the case of students with disabilities, officials may be punishing "behaviors that are simply a symptom of their disability, which should (by law) be addressed in other ways," Craven writes.
