Saturday, September 16
Location: MacRostie Art Center, 405 First Ave. NW, Grand Rapids, MN 55744
This session will explore how the school-to-prison pipeline criminalizes youth at younger and younger ages. With an increase in zero tolerance policies and police in the schools, children are being criminalized for typical youthful behavior, and pushed on a pathway to criminalization and incarceration. Professor Heitzeg will also address efforts to end the school-to-prison pipeline, locally and nationally.
Dr. Heitzeg is a Professor of Sociology & Co-Director of the Critical Studies of Race/Ethnicity Program. She writes and presents widely on issues of race, class, gender, and social control with attention to the school to prison pipeline and the prison industrial complex. Dr. Heitzeg's most recent book, The School to Prison Pipeline: Education, Discipline & Racialized Double-Standards, was published in 2016. She is the co-editor of an online series, Criminal InJustice, which is devoted to encouraging public education & action on issues of mass incarceration.
