Mapping the Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track Action Kit—A Product of the Advancement Project

Organization: Advancement Project

View PDF

This action kit is designed to support community activists who are working to end the schoolhouse to jailhouse track. The information in the kit is gleaned from the Advancement Project’s work on these issues and the experiences of the Ending the Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track Project, a partnership between the Advancement Project and organizations in Denver, Co., Chicago, Ill., and Palm Beach County, Fl. It is intended to assist mobilized communities in their quest to better understand the operation of the schoolhouse to jailhouse track so that they may ultimately eliminate the negative trends and create caring learning environments where this track is non-existent. The kit provides guidance on how to dissect this track by:

  • Collecting information and data about school discipline policies and practices, and
  • Analyzing and organizing the data.
