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? How can we view it through an education, law enforcement, criminal justice, faith or social services lens? And then, how can we take action? We’ll bring stakeholders together to discuss and answer those questions alongside our audience.
