Lockdown High : When the Schoolhouse Becomes a Jailhouse, Paperback / softback Book

Lockdown High : When the Schoolhouse Becomes a Jailhouse Paperback / softback

Description

In the dozen years since the Columbine High School shootings, school violence has fallen steadily.

Yet, as Annette Fuentes visits schools across America she finds metal detectors and drug tests for aspirin, police profiling of students with no records, arbitrary expulsions, teachers carrying guns, and all-seeing electronic surveillance.

Her moving stories will astonish readers, as she makes the case that our public schools reflect a society with an unhealthy fixation on crime and violence.
