School Policing: An American Function - Gonson Daytime Lecture & Discussion

Rising evidence of abuse by police officers in U.S. schools and new data analyses of school arrests indicate disparities across racist and ableist lines. A bipartisan movement placing police in schools since the 1990s has exacerbated structural biases in schools, not only reflecting the school-to-prison pipeline but contributing to it. Tracing the development of these officers’ roles in policy, law, and practice will reveal a microcosm of federal systems, anti-Blackness, and American blame and punishment. Instructor: Cindy Ok
