Toolkit on Organizing to Combat the School-to-Prison Pipeline

This Teachers United testimonial was written by an educator who taught at Lehman when it was a much larger school (4200 students), and discusses the history of the school and the problems that it faced that lead it to be in danger of closing. This extensive packet of tools is essentially a step-by-step guide of how to mobilize staff and students to launch a whole-school turnaround. Includes information on school organizing, school leadership council, student-led campaigns, requesting funding for Circle Process training, and Restorative Approaches Training.
