Notes:

"When 'zero tolerance' replaced 'teaching tolerance' as the dominant paradigm for children's lives and public education, society unleashed nothing less than a low-grade, persistent war on youth-and on our common future. Children in schools find themselves locked out and locked in, searched and surveilled, excluded and banished, objects of a militarized social order. Christopher Robbins has written a brilliant and incisive account of the ravaging of hope through the criminalization of youth, punishing kids by depriving them of an education. A must read to see how we got here, who is served, and how to resist." - Bernardine Dohrn, coeditor of Zero Tolerance: Resisting the Drive for Punishment in Our Schools: A Handbook for Parents, Students, Educators, and Citizens
