"School districts are increasingly teaming with law enforcement to create what some are calling the 'schoolhouse to jailhouse track' by imposing a 'double dose' of punishment: suspension or expulsion from school, accompanied by an arrest by the police and a trip to juvenile court. In this way, having failed to learn much in the way of civic education and/or the Bill of Rights while in school, young people are being browbeaten into believing that they have no true rights and government authorities have total power and can violate constitutional rights whenever they see fit."
