Interrupting the school-to-prison pipeline in education calls for collaboration between educators, researchers, the community, and students. This qualitative study examines the life of an individual with experiences on the school-to-prison pipeline, a metaphorical representation of a complex nexus that identifies, targets, and moves students from classrooms to courtrooms to jail cells. These students include a disproportionately large number of African-American students. Through interviews and analyses, we present the narratives of a male, African American college student’s experiences moving in and out of multiple homes, schools, and a variety of spaces in the penal system. Implications focus on ways we can interrupt the practices, power, and pedagogies that keep the nexus in motion.
