Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Lyons (conflict management and political science, U. of Akron) and Drew (English, U. of Akron) examine ways that schools are being punished as part of zero tolerance policies. They argue that schools are treated like prisons because of fear and how this fear is produced in suburban high schools, using the film Pleasantville as an example. They then address how urban high schools are seen as threatening and expendable. Elements of funding, taxation, politics, media portrayal, the role of public schools, and views about diversity are explored. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
