“The Youth Control Complex, the School-to-Prison Pipeline, and The Criminalization of Black and Latino Boys”
Dr. Victor Rios, Associate Dean of Social Sciences and Professor in the Department of Sociology, UC- Santa Barbara
This talk discusses the culture of control that marginalizes Black and Latinx youth. Drawing on the findings of a recent two-year ethnographic study, Rios shows that institutional figures, like educators and police officers, impact the cultural frames and resources used by marginalized students. Rios argues that top-down reform measures are often ineffective in urban high schools and police departments. He proposes culturally responsive and culturally anchored programs, policies, and practices for reversing the youth control complex and the school-to-prison pipeline.
