From Mauer & Lind Invisible Punishment: The Collateral Consequences of Mass Imprisonment — 2002

Abstract

The Maya Angelou Public Charter School in Washington, D.C.,

is the kind of institution conservatives support—a place that offers

opportunity but demands responsibility. Students are in

school ten and a half hours a day, year-round, mostly studying core subjects

such as reading, writing, math, and history. When not in class, they

work in student-run businesses, where they earn money and learn job

skills. Students who achieve academically are held in esteem not only by

their teachers but by their peers. Those who violate the school rules are

subject to punishment, including expulsion, as determined by a panel of

students.
