DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - The retired warden of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons is the keynote speaker for a conference at N.C. Central University on students going to prison.

Carlyle I. Holder will speak at the School-to-Prison Pipeline conference that begins on Friday and continues on Saturday.

Holder is president of the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice.

“School-to-prison pipeline” describes a pattern in which students who are expelled or suspended from school are more likely to wind up in jail or prison within a few years.

The conference begins with a dramatic reading depicting the voices of teens, teachers, court officers and prison guards at NCCU’s Michaux School of Education. On Saturday, there is Holder’s speech as well as two discussion panels in the school’s Criminal Justice Building auditorium.
