The school-to-prison pipeline is a phenomenon that is gaining visibility, yet there is little scholarship that brings together academic, activist, and legal literatures to describe and trouble it. Young people of color, urban poor youth, and youth with disabilities overpopulate this pipeline. There is growing evidence that the pipeline is further populated by LGBTQ youth, gender-nonconforming youth, and youth at the intersection of all of these social locations. In this chapter, the authors work across disciplinary locations to identify school practices and policies that produce what they term the pipeline population. They identify efforts currently under way and call for cross-coalitional strategies to intervene in the pipeline’s production. This chapter serves as a resource for those working within and across academic and nonacademic contexts to better understand, analyze, and theorize the production of the pipeline population and, ultimately, to dismantle the pipeline.
