Our Transformative Education Model

E-SToPP’s transformative education model draws from critical race, social, strengths-based, trauma-informed theories and pedagogies that align with our mission and vision of transforming public school and juvenile justice education systems.

Our education goal is to transform dismal educational experiences and settings into “safe haven” schools and educational opportunities for young people in the school-to-prison pipeline.
