Students’ Work in Clinic Highlighted on RadioWest

On May 21, 2015, Associate Professor Emily Chiang participated in a live panel discussion on KUER’s RadioWest program. The panel talked about the school-to-prison pipeline in Utah, asked who it affects, and explored what can be done to stem the pipeline that funnels children from school straight to prison. Students in Chiang’s Public Policy Clinic are working to end the pipeline by improving school discipline policies and graduation rates in Utah.

The conversation was presented in partnership with the Salt Lake County Bar Association.

Other participants included Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh, president of the Utah Education Association, and Capt. Justin Chapman, a student resource officer with the Sandy City Police Department.
