Over-Policing Our Schools by clayrodery Over-Policing Our Schools by clayrodery
Illustration about how in the wake of school shootings, many schools' efforts to become more secure have become borderline overzealous in their methods, while others are now "school to prison" pipelines.

Thanks! He's the school's principle. I guess it's a bit vague...the ID tag he's got doesn't exactly scream PRINCIPLE. Also, and while he's not supposed to directly be him, I slightly modeled him after Mr. Rogers to drive home that notion of schools' no longer being a place of child development, but more these cold secure facilities that between drills teachers make an attempt to teach.

The crazy shooters and terrorists have won if this is what we're reduced to; schools becoming Alcatrazes, airports becoming DMZs...

The increased jailification of schools is surely counterproductive! If increasing numbers of kids are apathetic and/or disaffected, then making their lives yet-more regimented and authority-domineered probably won't make things better...

/me stops with the lay-sociological woo

Excellent (if somberly evocative) piece.

Also, when these kids grow up having become accustomed to hyper-vigilant and paranoid behavior by grown-ups, what kind of adults will they turn into? Scary stuff.

Thanks so very much!
