Meiners ER. Right to Be Hostile: Schools, Prisons, and the Making of Public Enemies.; 2007.

"As early as preschool, educational policies and practices target
increasing numbers of students of color as under-educated, unemployable, and in need of surveillance and containment. In Right to be Hostile, Erica Meiners offers concrete examples and new insights into the 'school to prison' pipeline phenomenon, showing how disciplinary regulations, pedagogy, pop culture and more not only implicitly advance, but actually normalize an expectation of incarceration for urban youth."
