    have landed kids in the principal s or guidance counselor s office were now landing them in the juvenile justice system in the pipeline to prison Smith heard stories of five year olds being handcuffed for throwing tantrums and teenagers arrested for minor pranks The statistics in this the Western country with the highest incarceration rate are not only astonishing They also reveal a web of predicaments entrenched in criminal justice practices education policy long term poverty and as Stanford s Victor Carrion a character represented in the play points out the chronic stress of impoverishment and violence that hampers a child s ability to function in a classroom Here are just a few examples from the overwhelming data In 2012 13 190 children from kindergarten to third grade were suspended from California schools for the crimes of chewing gum in class talking back or wearing the wrong clothes Seventy percent of students involved in in school arrests or referred to law enforcement are black or Latino Being suspended in ninth grade doubles the likelihood that the student will not complete high school Sixty eight percent of all males in state and federal prison do not have a high school diploma Seventy percent of inmates in California state prisons are former foster care youth More black men are behind bars or within the criminal justice system than were enslaved in 1850 The connections among such data points became clear to Smith in deeply human terms as she interviewed teachers principals mentors advocates judges inmates students and government officials in Stockton Klamath and Oakland in California and in Philadelphia whom she now portrays in the play Smith arrived in her hometown of Baltimore to conduct more interviews on the heels of the death of Freddie Gray not even the latest name on the roster of African Americans who died this year in police custody a number that topped 200 in the first eight months of 2015 During that research process Smith saw how the punitive aggression of policing in poor communities of color lines up with young people s experience in the local schools The populations disproportionately profiled arrested and met with violence by police people of color and those with a history of abuse neglect poverty or learning disabilities are the same ones targeted by zero tolerance school discipline policies intended to keep schools free of drugs and weapons by imposing severe punishments like yearlong suspensions for any infraction Rather than improving school safety these policies end up criminalizing all kinds of rule breaking and disruptive activities that in more affluent communities would be resolved with a good talking to or in severe cases with therapy to help the child stabilize and succeed In public schools in poor communities however as counselors and nurses have been eliminated because of budget cuts discipline has been ceded to police officers stationed in school buildings through federal and local initiatives There s an opening for change now that Smith hopes her play can

    concert hall you have to walk through two sets of doors in order to keep out all outside noise As you walk through the doors notice the quality of your voice change 2 The wooden paneling in the hall Not just decoration The wooden planks that cover the walls may seem purely aesthetic but each plank is specifically designed with a sinusoidal shape to reflect and diffuse medium sound wavelengths while the large white sails spread the bass wavelengths across the concert hall These features ensure that all audience members experience the same sound quality no matter where they are sitting during an acoustic performance For amplified shows certain walls are covered by curtains and soft baffling material to cut excess reverb so artists can rock out and still sound great 3 Stage or a giant instrument The concert hall s stage itself contributes to the stunning acoustics in performance Its hollow resonant structure made from unvarnished yellow cedar works like the body of a huge string instrument 4 One control panel does the work of many For choral concerts or theatrical events the stage of the concert hall transforms into tiered risers What would take eight people eight hours to erect on a normal stage appears with the push of a button on a control panel that raises and lowers the stage s six independent parts in mere seconds with an impressive spiral driven lift system 5 You re maybe on archive The concert hall has a sophisticated recording studio which has state of the art speakers and a sound mixer To create sonic isolation the studio is built like a box within a box so that its walls aren t attached to any concert hall structures that could transfer vibration Frequently orchestral concerts in the hall are recorded
