NEW REPORT BLASTS NC’S
Because of “poorly funded schools, punitive disciplinary practices and inadequate education placements for suspended North Carolina students that push some out of classrooms and into courtrooms for minor misconduct…,” the study, titled, ‘From Push Out to Lock Up: North Carolina’s Accelerated School-to-Prison Pipeline,” by Action for Children North Carolina, a statewide research and advocacy group, says that those at-risk students are “…four times as likely to drop out of high school as their peers, and eight times as likely to end up in jail or prison.”
Friday's Raleigh protest will be in front of the Old Wake County Courthouse, 316 Fayetteville Street at 12 noon.
