Sacramento) - Kids in California need resources to ensure that they don’t become part of the “school-to-prison pipeline.” “We should be keeping youth in school, instead of arresting them for things like running away, violating curfews and school fights,” says Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-South Los Angeles). To help break that cycle, Assemblymember Jones-Sawyer is asking for $100M from the state budget to help more children succeed in life.
