Inhaltsangabe: From the inner-city to the suburbs, thousands of school children are being systematically subjected to mandatory classroom policies which inflict both physical and emotional harm. Hundreds of school officials from across the country have been found guilty of sexual harassment, the illegal use of undercover agents, strip searches, corporal punishment, verbal abuse, punitive isolation, and other forms of institutional abuse. In Dangerous Schools, Professor Irwin Hyman and Pamela Snook, passionate advocates against the institutional maltreatment of children, reveal exactly what is going on in our nation's schools and what we must do about it.
"This book makes a strong argument against school abuses and offers clear and proven strategies for change. It will appeal to parents who suspect that their children have been maltreated by educators and for advocates who desire a blueprint for social change."---James Garbarino, codirector, Family Life Development Center, Cornell University; author, What Children Can Tell Us
Rezension: When suburbs like Littleton, Jonesboro, and Paducah become synonymous with school violence, it's a rare voice that speaks out against beefing up security measures. As the director of the National Center for the Study of Corporal Punishment and Alternatives at Temple University, Irwin A. Hyman has seen many of the nation's schools retire their paddles, but as widely publicized school shootings linger in the national memory, he may have a harder time selling his pitch against increased use of metal detectors, surveillance cameras, drug testing, and campus cops. Hyman and his co-author, psychiatric nurse Pamela A. Snook, argue that today's educators are abusing these tactics in a toxic form of discipline that is undermining students' sense of justice and emotional well-being.
There are normal rules for safety, they say--and then there are violations of students' rights. The problem with Dangerous Schools is that many of its examples of the latter don't actually outrage. They often seem exaggerated or one-sided, sometimes from a lack of details. They do, however, provide helpful advice for parents who feel their children have been wrongly punished (plus an accurate insider's look at how schools often deal with such complaints). Families responding to an over-the-top disciplinarian could benefit most from key chapters. But as an attempt to curb police tactics on today's campuses, this argument will be lucky if it's heard over the din of metal detectors. --Jodi Mailander Farrell
