How US Public Schools Have Come to Increasingly Resemble Prisons Instead of Learning Centers. Blacklisted News.

This article by John Whitehead is profoundly disturbing.

That young children are being increasingly subjected to police violence and military hardware is heartbreaking.

Fortunately he quotes an example of where a school was taken over by new management determined to use non-violent methods and pupil empowerment.  The police were not pleased but they carried on and after a year the drop in serious incidents was down by a staggering 90%.

Just goes to show.

What sort of world do we want?

Then start by reflecting this in how we treat our young children.
