The term “school-to-prison pipeline” has become a powerful metaphor to
capture the processes by which children—typically low-income children of
color—are pushed out of school and into the criminal justice system. While
exact definitions of suspension and expulsion vary across states and school
districts, it is clear that what was intended to be last resort has become
wildly overused and disproportionately applied to children of color,
resulting in dramatically negative long-term effects. Preschoolers—children
ages 3 to 5—are especially vulnerable

to punitive and non-developmentally appropriate disciplinary measures.

highlights the trends around preschool discipline. It first details the
interconnected factors that augment these trends, including the rise of
zero-tolerance policies and mental health issues in young children. It also
explores some of the factors that cause suspensions and expulsions, such as
the implicit biases of teachers and school administrators and the lack of
support and resources for teachers.
