Elev8 Releases Policy Brief on School Discipline

School discipline policies that result in suspensions, expulsions and arrests are often disproportionate to student behavior and contribute to unhealthy school climates.

Elev8 developed this policy brief "Replacing the Prison Pipeline with Pathways to Graduation," drawing on first-hand experience in community schools across Baltimore, Chicago, Oakland and New Mexico. The brief outlines recommendations about how to develop and implement fair, just and effective school discipline policies focused on prevention, intervention and student well-being.
