In the last day of the Schools-To-Prison Pipeline Action Camp on the Campus of North Carolina Central University Durham NC.
The Friday March 2 – Sunday March 4 STPPAC and was hosted by The Alliance for Educational Justice (AEJ) a new national alliance of youth organizing and intergenerational groups working for educational justice. Learn more about (AEJ).
My family and I really enjoyed the STPPAC. We learned a lot about what is going on across the nation as it relates to the educational system and how our children are being forced in situations due to policies and procedures within various school systems.
I learned about the STPPAC through NC House Representation Angela Bryant Democrat one of our NC effective legislators. Rep. Bryant is always sharing good and valuable information to her constituents across the state. I also heard about it from the North Carolina Rural Education Working Group (NCREWG) whereby I am a member. The North Carolina Rural Education Working Group chair Anthony Clark, myself and some others attended this camp.
I have been an advocate for education since the early 90’s and I have seen some things good and bad that has changed over the years.
A take away from the STPPAC this weekend has made me think about policies and procedures that have been put in place in my local education system. Since attending the camp and thinking about when the ZERO Tolerance thingy was introduced in my county several years ago, I bet that this was an idea that my state got from another state. I didn’t like the ZERO Tolerance thing then nor now.
