Videos addressing the school-to-prison pipeline
From Global Action Project!
This video questions why people leave school or fail to graduate. Rather
than focusing on the more commonly held idea of "drop outs," the video
examines the trends of push-outs, and the many ways that young people
feel discouraged by the educational system. Interviewing educational
researchers, students, and each other, we try to present the stories
behind the statistics.
The summer of 2004 saw the lowest youth employment rate in NYC in over
two decades. While youth struggle to get a decent education and jobs for
teens are at an all-time low, funding for jails and detention centers
continue to increase. G.A.P. youth spent the summer exploring this
connection and produced a creative reflection on this enduring problem.
