Lawyers Eddie Ferrer and Kaitlin Banner shared how the school to prison pipeline issues we've been learning about in New York play out in D.C. and on a national level.
Priorities we plan to discuss with our elected representatives tomorrow:
- Funding for Restorative Justice Practices
- Incentives for schools to not suspend students
- Requirements around collecting data that will help to monitor whether suspensions continue to disproportionately impact certain communities
- Equitable funding for schools
