Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses the intersection between schools and the criminal justice system, why this intersection has tightened in recent decades, and the negative consequences associated with this negative trend on individuals, families, and our nation. It also describes how marginalized student groups often suffer disproportionately from these negative trends, leading to further harm. Finally, it discusses initiatives that schools can adopt to promote safe learning environments without resorting to coercive policies that lead to more student involvement in the criminal justice system.

Keywords: criminal justice, juvenile delinquency, school-to-prison pipeline, school discipline, student surveillance, school safety
