Preschool to Prison Pipeline: A Local Perspective
Join MOSES Madison and the CommNS for a panel discussion and
Thursday, March 10, 6:00 pm
Central Library, West Mifflin Madison Wisconsin, on the 3rd Floor
Panel Members include:
Pam Oliver, UW- Madison, Professor of Sociology
Predicting prison populations via 3rd grade reading skills is a myth; rather interrelations among poverty, discrimination and inter-group conflict, crime, and schooling are better predictors. Racial disparities are not explained away by educational differences.
Hart-Tervalon will share stories from her informal study in which she visited several jails and prisons in Wisconsin and interviewed people about their educational experiences.
Mauab’El will share experiential experience both as a young man in the school system, and as a formerly incarcerated individual who has co founded a youth mentoring program
Deb Anderson, Current MMSC teacher at the Metro Madison School
Anderson will focus on the second chance bill, which allows minors to waive into adult court and also how early inclusion of police within schools is setting up a bad precedent for children with increased interactions with them
There will be a chance for discussion after the panel! Bring a friend.
