Advance Praise for

From Education to Incarceration

“How did we become a society that handcuffs its young and warehouses them in penal institutions instead of educating them? From Education to Incarceration answers that question and offers an intelligently crafted overview of how ill-advised and inhumane practices and policies in the United States have betrayed generations of young persons, with suggestions for how we can up-end these transgressions. Educators, attorneys, youth organizers, and many others write with authority and conviction in this timely, relevant, and eminently readable book.”

—Heidi Boghosian, Executive Director, National Lawyers Guild

“The authors, activists, and educators who gather their voices in From Education to Incarceration paint a clear, devastating picture of the way systems and the people who profit from their corruption create and then target disenfranchised youth. But what makes this book unique is that they do more: they equip us with the tools to fight back. That is invaluable and why everybody who cares about youth should read this book.”
