Summary: The school-to-prison pipeline is a disturbing national trend wherein children are funneled out of public schools and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems, when they most need support from their schools and communities. The ACLU is committed to challenging the criminalization and incarceration of young people—particularly youth from marginalized communities. SB29 would provide incarcerated youth with school materials while detained, better equipping individuals to build successful lives in their communities upon release.
