School-to-prison Pipeline/Schoolhouse-to-JailhouseSchool-to-prison Pipeline or Schoolhouse-to-Jailhouse describes the ways in which youth are not only pushed out of school but also pushed in to the juvenile justice system.How does this affect LGBTQ youth?LGBTQ youth are more likely to be targeted for dress code violations, policies restricted same-sex dates and public affection. School harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity was reported by superintendents in the Mississippi as the most prevalent form of harassment. LGBTQ you are more likely to be suspended and expelled, even for defending themselves against such attacks. Students like Audri reported that teachers and school faculty even play a role in in-school harassment:Audri, 14, became home-schooled after she was pushed out of her public school in Mississippi. She would often be cornered and defend herself against anti-LGBTQ harassment. In order to keep from being expelled or possibly ending up in the juvenile justice system, her mother removed her from school.• ”There are teachers who will literally bring out the bible and say that homosexuality is a sin and how you’re going to hell… I’ve heard teachers talk about me personally saying I’m going to Hell because I’m gay.” For more on Audri’s story check out her Stories Project video on MSSafeSchoolsTVhttp://www.mssafeschools.org/resources/juvenile-justice/
