Editorial Reviews


"Compelling. . . . Hetizeg's book on the school-to-prison pipeline introduces the readers to an atrocious phenomenon, gives information on society's impact on the growth of the pipeline, and finishes with a sense of optimism as she strives to see more education and less incarceration in America's schools."
