The Kern Education Justice Collaborative, the Dolores Huerta Foundation and CSUB’s Center for Social Justice invite school administrators and the community for a free screening of StrikeOut, a docudrama about the harsh policies and discipline practices in Kern schools, which push students out of the classrooms and into the juvenile justice system.
A panel discussion following the film will include: Dr. Ramona Bishop Superintendent of Vallejo Unified School District, an exemplar in the movement to dismantle the School-to-Prison pipeline; Dr. Rob Arias, Chief Deputy of State and Local Initiatives for the Kern County Superintendent of Schools; Erika Brooks, Education Director with the Dolores Huerta Foundation; Joey Williams, Faith in Action’s Lead Organizer; and Miguel Orozco, writer and producer of StrikeOut.
