Justuce or just us?: voices from within prison walls
The school to prison pipeline refers to the pattern of tracking students out of educational institutions into the penal system. This narrative study was designed to explore the reasons young Black men aged 19-25 are being incarcerated at a growing rate from the young men's perspectives. By giving these young men a voice, this research allowed these young men to tell their stories of why they think they were incarcerated and what interventions could have helped them. This study highlights the young men's perception of influences in their lives that funneled them into the school to prison pipeline. Research suggests the need for social and political programs that will assist families in the formative lives of young Black me.
