State(s) All States
Policy Areas Civil Rights, Economic Justice, Education
This report articulates young people’s mandate to their government—local, state, and federal—to permanently end the school-to-prison-and-deportation pipeline and build a liberatory education system based on principles of inclusion, equity and racial justice. The key points of the mandate including demands to fund education, not incarceration (end federal funding for police in schools, support a pipeline to college and eliminate barriers to higher education), restore and strengthen the civil rights of young people (fund civil rights offices that uphold the rights of young people, support maximum local democratic control of the education system), and end the private takeover of schools (end funding for charter schools, fund traditional public schools).
