K Student's Experiences With the School-to-Prison Pipeline in Their Public High Schools
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to understand the ways in which the experiences of current Kalamazoo College students varied during their high school years, as well as the extent to which this variation relates to the surveillance and policing measures present within their respective high schools. Through twelve structured interviews, ranging between 10-30 minutes long, I determined that Kalamazoo College students had significantly different experiences with the school-to-prison pipeline and police surveillance in high school. Furthermore, my research shows that the variability of student experiences with the school-to-prison pipeline is extremely dependent on their race and/or ethnicity. Overall, predominately white schools showed less surveillance and police presence. This trend stood in stark contrast to my findings related to schools whose student bodies consisted primarily of students of color, which reported significantly higher rates of surveillance and police presence.
