Lyons and Drew explore what has arguably been the dominant trend of American public schooling over the past several years: the increasing likeness of public schools to prisons and the criminalization of youth culture. As conveyed in their subtitle, Lyons and Drew examine how a culture of fear, aggravated by the shootings at Columbine, but accelerated by 9/11, has so deeply permeated the daily routines of public schools.

In a society increasingly dominated by zero-tolerance thinking, Punishing Schools argues that our educational system has become both the subject of legislative punishment and the instrument of punishment for children. Authors Lyons and Drew analyze the connections between a culture of economic punishment of our schools (by the diversion of funding to charter schools, the imposition of unfunded mandates, and the enforcement of dubious forms of teacher accountability) and the imposition by those schools of punitive controls on their own students - a vicious cycle that creates fear and encourages the development of passive and dependent citizens. Based on in-depth interviews and detailed analysis of official documents, newspapers, and popular texts, Punishing Schools offers a rich and incisive critique of our public education system and its role in our national political culture.

I relied heavily on this book while I was writing my thesis. I have even considered writing Lyons and Drew to thank them personally for conducting such an important study. Punishing Schools asks the tough questions in today's world where one can "Never be too safe." They look specifically at a suburban high school to subtly ask the question "What are we really afraid of? And what are the long-term effects of our (often unfounded) fears?"

If you are looking for a book that will take you into today's high school in search of the issues students, teachers, and parents face on a daily basis, I have found few other books more accurate than Punishing Schools. Lyons and Drew attempt to maintain as neutral ground as possible, but you will find them falling on the side of personal rights and liberties over security in most instances. Do not buy this book expecting to find another reason to fear America's youth, but be sure to pick this book up if want to regain touch with the fact that high schools are populated by children rather than prisoners.

This book has many other books that I would consider "companions" to Punishing Schools: including specifically "Zero Tolerance" by William Ayers, Rick Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Jesse L. Jackson; and on the converse side of the issue "School Crime and Policing" by William L. Turk.

Insightful and thought-provoking. Drew does an excellent job of demonstrating how current laws and policies negatively impact the development of America's future citizens. Highly recommended for anyone going into education or politics.
