American Bar Association Juvenile Justice Policies Report on Zero Tolerance

"Education on Lockdown: The Schoolhouse to Jailhouse Track" is a 64 page report on Zero Tolerance and its effects on students in three metropolitan areas. I thought the recommendations especially might be useful to delinquency and CAFL defenders, special ed advocates, parents and educators even in those areas not part of the study. Thanks to Jim Peacock and his "Zero Intelligence Daily Update" for alerting me to this document.
