What are your thoughts on the current campaigns and protests to “defund police” and “remove police from schools”?

What is meant by the phrase: “school to prison pipeline”?How has the current state of school discipline developed and why is it resulting in this “pipeline”?How do systemic racism and the historical practice of redlining relate to the school to prison pipeline today? (be sure explain how discipline is carried in schools, who is disciplined the most, and the role the criminal justice system plays and why)How does labeling theory contribute to the school to prison pipeline?Why are school discipline strategies currently being heavily critiqued, leading some districts and federal officials to move to change things?What are your thoughts on the current campaigns and protests to “defund police” and “remove police from schools”? (please be sure to think about pros and cons of having police in schools. Does having them make schools and communities safer? Or does having them further contribute to the school to prison pipeline and racial injustice?)How can you relate this to anything we’ve discussed in class so far? (Think about who has access to education; Who gets to be educated and who doesn’t? Historically and around the world, how has race, class, poverty and gender played a role?)
