Suspension Press conference - Metro Justice

Suspension Press conference

Breaking the School-To-Prison Pipeline

(Press Conference)



On Tuesday November 18th: students, parents, administrators, teachers, and community members will come together to choose a new path. 

The prison system is swallowing up our young people one by one. It's time to work together, to have open and honest discussions, and to focus on real solutions.

Please join us at School 17 on Tuesday the 18th at 4 pm to learn more about how we can begin to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline. 

To tackle complex problems we need a deeper understanding of the issues. Metro Justice, in partnership with the Alliance for Quality Education, Teen Empowerment, Advancement Project, and with cooperation from the Rochester City School District (RCSD), has compiled a report on school discipline in RCSD. 

The numbers cannot tell us everything, but they do tell us more than anecdotes or personal experience alone. This is a chance to step back and think about what the broader picture. Please be a part of this important conversation. We need everyone's help to chart a new course for the future.
