Chapter 14 – Youth Incarceration & Education Policy by Angela James
Speakers will discuss the following themes: racial justice, equity, community accountability, youth incarceration, and what the future needs in education policy.
Our Children Can’t Wait urges readers to reconsider what education policy is, what it could be, who it is for, and who should be directly shaping it at all levels of government. Experts present a new equity roadmap by bridging scholarship, ideas, and original thinking on education policy as a vehicle for setting a redemptive path forward for reckoning with race in America.
