Group Four


Group 4 Members: Payton Drefcinski, Ryan Campbell, Trevor Huettig, Dylan Sumners

Research Question: How can raising literacy rates, especially for Black youth, work against the damaging effects of the school-to-prison pipeline?

Findings: Research showed that young black males were more likely to fall into the pipeline and less likely to keep up with readings.  Children who spend time reading are found to be engaging in positive behavior while children who cannot read are more likely to engage in criminal behavior or misbehave in the school setting.
