Feb 14, 2013 12:05 pm
More than 50 community members gathered at Time & Space Ltd. Wed., Feb. 13, to discuss the school to prison pipeline, a process that funnels young people from schools into the criminal justice system. Special guest speaker Richard Smith was joined by three Hudson residents personally familiar with the PINS (Persons In Need of Supervision) process. The conversation encompassed a variety of topics including the level of racism students encounter in the Hudson district, and the lack of curriculum that teaches students of color about their own history. WGXC's Cory Fischer-Hoffman recorded the full discussion, and spoke to two Hudson High School sophomores following the program. PLAY (5:19)
