A review of this literature allowed the writers and authors to express how crimes have decreased and prisons have increased with African Americans, Hispanics, low-socioeconomic families, and students with special disabilities. Zero tolerance policies are being used in today’s school systems that lead to an increase in school arrests. This paper is designed to study the research that shows how a particular population of students are being forced out of school’s systems and into the juvenile criminal justice system which then filters them into federal prisons.
