When children are labled as "trouble makers" or "problem children" because they are chronically suspended from school, their lives often follow a predictable pattern: they served time in a juvenile detention facility and later end up in an adult prison.But it doesn't have to happen this way. If we as caring adults would do the little things necessary to intervene, we can stop this "school to prison" pipeline that profits from children with problems who make bad choices.Political consultant and author of the book Murder to Excellence: Growth & Developmet for the Millenial Generation, Wallace "Gator" Bradley discuses his efforts, along with many other former street gang members, to turn the tide in the urban community and inspire thowe headed toward incarceration to turn their lives around and achieve excellence.
