In Right to be Hostile, scholar and activist 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. Analyzed through a framework of an expanding incarceration nation, Meiners demonstrates how educational practices that disproportionately target youth of color become linked directly to practices of racial profiling that are endemic in state structures. As early as preschool, such educational policies and practices disqualify increasing numbers of students of color as they are funneled through schools as under-educated, unemployable, 'dangerous,' and in need of surveillance and containment. By linking schools to prisons, Meiners asks researchers, activists, and educators to consider not just how our schools physical structures resemble prisons metal detectors or school uniforms but the tentacles in policies, practices and informal knowledge that support, naturalize, and extend, relationships between incarceration and schools. Understanding how and why prison expansion is possible necessitates connecting schools to prisons and the criminal justice system, and redefining "what counts" as educational policy.

Recensioner i media

Gwen Stowers, Associate Professor at National University "Yes, there is a place for this book, especially with the connections to the media and public policy formation. I believe the book makes an original contribution particularly with the analysis of the Oz program [part of sample chapter]. It is important to show step by step how the public is manipulated.The material is timely and since these ideas are still not commonly know, the shelf life would be fairly long. . . . I recommend this book for publication." Garret Albert Duncan, Associate Professor of Education, African and African-American Studies, and American Culture Studies, Washington University in St. Louis "Right to Be Hostile is definitely a publishable project. Keep in mind that I have only had acces to the proposed books outline, a reference list, and Chapter 3. At the same time, I have no dpubt that the rest of the book is similarly grounded in solid scholarship and that Meiners will continue her wonderful job of rendering a hotely controversial subject and some rather dense ideas in ways to make them accessible to a broad audience, within and outside the academy." "Given how formidable her task, the result is nothing short of remarkable. No educator can read this book and be unchanged by it." Book Smarts, Patricia H. Hinchey, 6/16/08
