A School-to-Prison Pipeline or a System at Work? A Synthesis of Literature. Andrea Kalvesmaki, Irene H. Yoon (University of Utah)

The “school-to-prison pipeline” (STPP) is of increasing concern in education. Most analyses of STPP address school zero-tolerance policies as the central contributing factor. However, school policy does not operate in isolation. This literature review synthesizes 31 texts addressing and identifying policies from education, juvenile justice, and federal law. Using systems theory, the 29 policies identfied across the texts are grouped and discussed in terms of their confluence, feedback effects, and networked contribution to the STPP.

Neoliberalism’s Effect on School Violence Policies and Racial Disadvantage. Ryan Kapa, Ohio State University

Using neoliberalism as a theoretical framework, this paper examines how school violence policies implemented within school systems contribute to racial disadvantage. Under neoliberal influence, school security has grown increasingly privatized. School violence policies are discussed in detail within the paper. These greater rates have led to minorities failing to receive the same type of education that White peers receive. Administrators must become aware of the effect of neoliberalism and its influence over school violence policies.

Successful Escape from the School to Prison Pipeline: Re-Envisioning Leadership Practices That Champion Justice. Dionne Cowan, Janice Fournillier (Georgia State University)

The school to prison pipeline (STPP) is a conceptual framework re ecting the injustice that bleeds at the intersection of the educational and criminal justice systems. This phenomenological study examined the lived experiences of six men of color and their successful evasion. Constructionism and critical inquiry framed this phenomenological study. The findings pinpoint the role structures of support that champion justice, success, and equity for boys and young men of color played in the process.

Takin’ it to the Streets: Leading Organizational Citizenship, Curbing Bullying, and Ensuring Safe Campus Communities. Page A. Smith, University of Texas at San Antonio; Sean Kearney, Texas A&M University-San Antonio

Developing leader strategies for dealing with campus violence is critical. This investigation targets one aspect of deleterious school behavior, student bullying, and analyzes how leader initiated organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) at the faculty level rede nes safe learning spaces in the campus community. The general hypothesis, that OCB is positively related to teacher protection of students, is supported, and multiple regression analyses provide a more re ned picture of leadership and the school safety issue.
