Your Call: How can schools keep young people from ending up in prison?
On today's Your Call, we’ll speak with performer and playwright, Anna Deavere Smith about her new work in progress, “Field Notes: Doing Time In Education.” According to the ACLU, “policies and practices push our nation’s schoolchildren, especially our most at-risk children, out of classrooms and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems.” What can we do about the school to prison pipeline? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Matt Martin and You.
