Carol Harding Lecture Series at the
17th Annual Children’s Summer Institute
School to Prison OR Cradle to Career?
Imagining a Different Pipeline
Why not a “ cradle to career” instead of “school to prison” pipeline? What is the school to prison pipeline, and how and why did it evolve? What has the impact been in Chicago on childhood, children’s futures, and communities? To what extent is implicit bias at work? What can we do differently to confront the challenges faced in the schools by children, their families, and our communities?
Join us for this one-day multidisciplinary program exploring current responses and new directions for lawyers, social workers, educators, law enforcement, psychologists, and child advocates to better serve children in our communities and our schools and move us toward a cradle to career pipeline.
About the Children’s Summer InstituteThe Children’s Summer Institute is an interdisciplinary program for social workers, educators, lawyers, psychologists, child development specialists, and child advocates.
The Lecture Series is offered as part of a weeklong law and graduate student seminar convened by Civitas ChildLaw Center, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, and Erikson Institute.
