Securing the Education Pipeline for Georgia’s Children through Community-Empowered Local School Councils

DSC member Gwinnett SToPP is a part of The Georgia Coalition Working to End the School to Prison Pipeline.  In February 2015, this report was released that gives background on STPP in Georgia and advocates for local school councils as a mechanism for parent/community engagement that can help dismantle the STPP. The coalition believes that local school councils are uniquely suited to address discipline and education issues within Georgia’s school systems.The report provides policy recommendations to the Georgia General Assembly and the Georgia Department of Education.
