Missouri dooms countless children to the school-to-prison pipeline

How Your Donations Are Used

The Free-To-Learn Project uses the donations to assist parents whose children have become victim to the school-to-prison pipeline. Many children are suspended or expelled from the public school system for extended periods of time, causing them to fall behind their peers in schoolwork. Some children are even imprisoned in juvenile detention centers for months at a time crippling their chances for a normal education.
