Position Paper on NCLB and the School to Prison Pipeline

FairTest and five other organizations have issued a paper, Federal Policy, ESEA and the School to Prison Pipeline. It looks at testing, school climate and 'zero tolerance' discipline policies as causes of the Pipeline, and makes recommendations on assessment, accountability, discipline and student re-entry to schools.

The link to the paper is below, along with a current list of endorsers and a form for new organizational and individual endorsements (for now, please ignore the deadline - we are continuing to take endorsements).
