Video recording of the “Latin@ Students and the School-to-Prison-Pipeline” panel discussion.


The Association of Mexican-American Educators (AMAE) Journal published a special issue in 2013 (Co-guest edited by Donaldo Macedo, Lilia Bartolome, Victor Rios and Anthony Peguero) focused on the consequences of the Latin@ school-to-prison pipeline. The school-to-prison pipeline is marginalizing schools, communities, and families by derailing the educational success and progress of Latin@ youth. It restricts and excludes youth from the labor market and promotes mistrust and resentment toward authority, the criminal justice system, and all forms of social control. Please dialogue with a group of scholars from across the country whose research and personal lives are working toward solutions to dismantle this pipeline.
