KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - The trend of children moving from the classroom into the criminal justice system will be discussed at the next meeting of the Michigan Civil Rights Commission.

A lawyer from the Michigan chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union will speak Monday at the commission’s meeting at Kalamazoo College. Racial Justice Project attorney Mark Fancher will talk about what’s called the “school-to-prison pipeline” as well as policies and practices that contribute to it.

The meeting is open to the public. Individuals who want to discuss civil rights issues can do so during a public comment period at the end of the meeting.
