Skip to comments.Report: Wake schools suspensions a 'prison pipeline'
Posted on 08/20/2013 6:52:27 AM PDT by RightGeek
Raleigh, N.C. In a report issued Monday, Legal Aid of North Carolina blasted the disciplinary system in the Wake County Public School System, calling it a "school-to-prison pipeline."
"The pipeline is a system of laws, policies, and practices that pushes students out of schools and on a path toward the juvenile and criminal systems," the report said.
Legal Aid's Advocates for Children's Services project looked at data on student suspensions for the 2011-12 school year and found the punishments are applied disproportionately to students who are African-American, economically disadvantaged or disabled.

The hustlers *cannot* notice that; to do so would completely invalidate their belief matrix. In their eyes, such people are if anything *less* likely to be behavior problems, or if they are equal, it is through no fault of their own. However, they by far choose to believe that such students are no more disruptive than others, and that the school’s administration has merely singled such students out for punishment. Never mind that if such were really the case, some employee at the school would have dropped a dime on them with the PC police long ago.
Just another reason to home school. You know these disruptive students will be back in school on no time flat.
I wish they would also publish the stats on the African-American families, that is, the disproportionately fatherless African-American families. Those stats fit in with the stats of African-American males in prison.
Fits for white and Latino families too. Go figure.
Are you old enough to remember the sit-com called MURPHY BROWN? It was Candice Bergen playing a reporter. The sit-com was about how unnecessary men were as fathers. Women could do it all by themselves.
The Vice-president at the time, Dan Quayle, said that fathers were important. He was EXCORIATED by the lamestream media and the more-than-usual screechy women's groups.
Of course, he was right!
Selfish women and hairless men.
Yup, let’s keep those problem chilluns in school.
Hey, let’s issue them hoodies.
That’ll help their “eddikashun”.
In other news, criminals are punished disproportionately.
Yeah, sure. Everybody knows discipline causes crime, and in fact, guns cause crime, too.
You missed some important parts: the kids have one parent (who doesn't really give a damn), they don't attend church, glorify gang-bangers, never take responsibility for their problems - and the one parent at home votes for democrats to 'get stuff'... Not that we're profiling the average kid who makes horrible grades, flunks out (with cause) and constantly gets in trouble with the law...
And no, this is NOT caused by poverty - lots of poor kids with decent values and parental guidance do just fine... always have - always will... The problem is modern American black culture... that came out of the idiocy of the 60's...
How about this instead:
The thug's disregard for laws, policies, and practices push them out of schools and on a path toward the juvenile and criminal systems
so... it’s the fault of the policies that the kid becomes a thug, eh? the poor kid has no choice in the matter?
Actually, it is the “no consequences” society that is the “pipeline to prison”.
No discipline at home, in the community, or in the schools.
The good ol’ “disparate impact” circular reasoning.
(Rape laws have a disparate impact on rapists.)
We DO in fact need to eliminate any possibility of anybody PROFITING from sending anybody to prison...
Well what about the behavior that CAUSES the suspensions! I’m getting so sick of this!
Really? And then for your added benefit Wake County will bus the criminals to your kids school. The place is a nightmare.
Miami-Dade School police chief stopped this and implemented the school-to-grave policy (Treyvon Martin).
Look, some people just can’t function in a 1st World civilization. If everyone could then there would be 1st World conditions in every corner of the globe.
