In her review of The School-to-Prison Pipeline: Education, Discipline, and Racialized Double Standards by Nancy A. Heitzeg, Jennifer Otting observes how zero-tolerance drug policies help to create a school-to-prison pipeline for youth of color. Heitzig’s work contrasts the treatment of affluent White drug users, who are offered treatment programs, and youth of color, who are more likely to encounter the law enforcement system and be incarcerated.
