Education Under Arrest

Tavis Smiley explores the connection between the juvenile justice system and dropout rates among American teens.

Education Under ArrestIn a second special report on education, Tavis Smiley examines the ramifications of “Zero Tolerance” policies across the country that are expelling students from school for disciplinary issues like disruptive behavior and foul language, quickly becoming a school-to-prison pipeline and leading students into the juvenile justice system. Once they're removed from school, it becomes very difficult for these young students to get back on track. Watch as educators, law enforcement professionals and at-risk youth give telling insight into the juvenile justice system and how they see it rehabilitating teenagers and reintegrating them into school.
