Suspended Justice: Breaking the School to Prison Pipeline
I worked with former channel 8 reporter Natasha Alford on this piece this past summer and she is now doing great work with The Grio now in NY city. This piece explores the over-policing invasion of schools. To counter the school-to-prison pipeline, alternative disciplinary practices such as restorative justice, have been introduced to the Rochester City School District by Metro Justice, the M.K. Gandhi Institute of Non-violence, and Teen Empowerment.
