Video: Singer Aloe Blacc Teams Up with NEA to Stop the School-to-Prison Pipeline
Singer-songwriter and activist Aloe Blacc's new video, "Love Is the Answer," follows the downward path of a student who's kicked out of school. "Educators play an important role in finding solutions to the school-to-prison pipeline," says he says in this video, "so it's important to have their expertise in the discussion. The challenge is for us to all work together to secure the future of these students and give them a real chance."
