Florida NAACP Testimony for Durbin Hearing- Ending the School-to-Prison Pipeline
In December 2012, Senator Durbin (D-IL) held the first ever Congressional hearing on the school-to-prison pipeline. Community groups from across the nation packed the hearing room (and the overflow room!) to show their strong support for Congressional action to end the school-to-prison pipeline nationwide. In addition to the live testimony, groups and individuals submitted written testimony documenting their experiences with extreme discipline in their schools and their communities.
