Education Under Arrest

Tavis Smiley Reports "Education Under Arrest"
Airs Tuesday, March 26 at 7:00 PM

Many public schools are still operating under the 1999 "Zero Tolerance" initiative, which tied federal funding to this mandate. "Zero Tolerance," which came about after the horrifying Columbine tragedy, demands that kids be removed from schools the first time they transgress--even for minor offenses. This puts them into the juvenile justice system--a system that those who work within its confines admit too often does a better job of punishment than rehabilitation and re-integration into schools.
