From our view point, the AIC will serve as "truancy detention" centers rather than a space that has the actual resources and services to implement successful forms of prevention and intervention to address the underlying reasons for the student's tardiness/truancy.

On October 2nd 2010 the Labor Community Strategy's Center's Community Rights Campaign erected a "School to Prison" pipeline Walking Maze & Resistance Art Exhibit. This innovative art piece displayed a day in the life of a high school student at a LAUSD school. The exhibit was not only a viewing of art, but also a theater piece that encapsulated the experiences that a student faces when attempting to get to school on a poor y run and expensive bus system and the police harassment they encounter when they finally arrive to campus.
The Community Rights Campaign, based in Los Angeles, is fighting the school to prison pipeline. In October 2010, members created a "School-to-Prison" Pipeline Walking Maze & Resistance Art Exhibit to give participants a first hand experience of how inner city public high schools are increasingly hostile sites where student behavior is frequently criminalized.
