Cracking the School to Jail Pipeline: Restorative Justice, Zero Tolerance and Other Disciplinary and Suspension Alternatives

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Criminologists studying schools, specifically school crime and discipline, have become increasingly interested in identifying viable alternatives to the suspension and arrest policies engendered by zero-tolerance strategies. At the same time, they have developed an appreciation for the complexity of zero tolerance polices and the frustrations felt by school administrators and faculty who must spend unreasonable amounts of time managing disorderly and unsafe conditions. Researchers looking to understand and contextualize the problems of crime, violence and antisocial behavior in schools have endeavored to apply theoretical perspectives from criminology, criminal justice, and other disciplines when designing methodology to help understand the complex dynamics of zero tolerance practices and their application in various schools and school districts.
One research approach has been, for example, to consider “whole school,” rather than programmatic, or piecemeal approaches that seek overall cultural change rather than simply applying new practices. Recognizing that many effective alternative practices may be widely and successfully employed with little impact on suspension and use of punitive options, this paper outlines a conceptual and methodological framework that considers the viability of restorative justice in better understanding and addressing zero tolerance decisionmaking in urban school systems.
