Editorial Reviews

Review

"Police in the Hallways presents a detailed ethnographic analysis of the ways in which discipline policies in New York schools have influenced the education and social experience of young people in so-called impact schools. Kathleen Nolan uncovers the complexity of the issues and exposes the unfairness of the policies in a subtle yet compelling manner." —Pedro Noguera, author of The Trouble With Black Boys and Other Reflections on Race, Equity and the Future of Public Education



"Anyone interested in education in American should definitely take this sobering journey into life in an urban high school." —Library Journal

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book for every educator, especially educators working in a city. It's easy for the general pubic to assume or judge that city students (the "urban" moniker is often code for students of color) have trouble achieving because of personal defects, when greater consideration needs to be given to the "police state" environment many students are forced to endure. The author does an excellent job of presenting a fly on the wall perspective of how education takes place within a school that is literally crawling with security personnel. The struggles and contrasting perspectives of students, teachers, administrators, safety officers and the NYPD are all given their due. Great and important book.
