The Human Potential: Disrupting the School-to-Prison Pipeline

The Human Potential: Disrupting the School-to-Prison Pipeline

MPR News and the Fitzgerald Theater host The Human Potential, a series of conversations that dig into timely news topics and the issues facing our society. The first conversation explores why students of color are caught in the school-to-prison pipeline. How do we create a common understanding of this issue?

We’ll bring stakeholders together to discuss and answer those questions alongside our audience.
