School-to-prison pipeline: maybe we are at fault after all
FEBRUARY 2, 2019
It’s taken me days to write this! This is a real thought piece that has changed completely as I’ve run through the logic in my head, so hear me out and I’d love to know your thoughts on this too. You know, I’d actually prefer to be persuaded that I’m wrong and then I wouldn’t feel so guilty that I’m part of a system that might actually be making life much worse for children. Long story short: an article was recently published arguing that instead of excluding pupils, we should all work harder to accommodate them more, otherwise they might end up in prison. The thing is, I’m wondering whether these pupils are being excluded and then ending up in prison because we accommodated them too much.
