Editorial Reviews

Review

“Kupchik's writing is meticulous and even-handed, even praising the officers whose methods he strongly disagrees with.”

-Salon

"In this reevaluation of efforts to address school safety, Kupchik finds that recent attempts to reduce school violence have resulted in actions that contribute to the problem rather than correct it."
-R. Roth,Choice

"Kupchik provides a compelling and detailed overview of the current discipline environment in today's schools . . . Kupchik builds the case that the recent law-and-order approach to student behavior may have many negative consequences, such as developing a population that never questions authority while not accomplishing the goal of keeping students safer."
-VOYA Library Magazine,VOYA Library Magazine

 "Homeroom Security persuasively raises alarm over the arbitrary and pernicious rules to which students are subjected.  [Kupchik] warns that such practices run the risk of creating docile subjects rather than critical citizens, an essential ingredient for a strong democracy.”-Social Forces

“Few issues are more important to parents than school violence. . . . This is research of prime quality that is readable and rigorous on an issue of extraordinary public importance and interest.”
-Jonathan Simon,author of Governing through Crime



“In his compelling, important book about American schools and discipline, Kupchik, a professor of sociology at the University of Delaware, punctures the myth that tighter security measures stemmed from Columbine or any other school shooting.”
-Kate Tuttle,Boston Globe

Format: Paperback
Aaron Kupchik does a compelling job of portraying his opinion on homeroom secuirty and gives many different examples of it. Homeroom Secuirty: School Discipline in an Age of Fear does it's job explaining the different security throughout schools.The book made it interesting to see the various forms of security implemented in schools and whether or not they help control discipline problems. The many "real" examples given throughout the duration of the novel made it enjoyable for me to read. Also I liked how Kupchik stated his opinion clearly but also gave reason as to why he has that opinion as well as the opposing side of his opinions. It made me realize how important interaction between staff, faculty, and students is rather than just security fixes alone. I would recommend this book for more political people and to people in the school system. This could be very helpful in helping schools treat behavioral problems and discipline problems without taking extreme measures that don't seem to be effective.
