School is back in session, and it’s time to learn about a system that funnels black and brown kids from schools into our criminal-justice system. It’s called the school-to-prison pipeline, and it’s affecting black children as early as preschool. Watch above.

Tune in to The Root on Friday for a Facebook Live panel discussion on how the school-to-prison pipeline affects our children and what we can do about it, featuring Beatriz Beckford, Kassandra Frederique, Dr. Stacey Patton and Dr. Monique W. Morris and moderated by asha bandele.
