Protecting the Bill of Rights in Utah since 1958

School-to-Prison Pipeline

The ACLU of Utah is committed to challenging the school-to-prison pipeline, a disturbing national and state trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. “Zero-tolerance” policies criminalize minor infractions of school rules, while cops in schools lead to students being criminalized for behavior that should be handled inside the school. Students of color are especially over represented in push-out trends and the discriminatory application of discipline. We believe that children should be educated, not incarcerated. We want advocates and community members alike to be empowered with information so that we can take action to end School-to-Prison Pipeline.
