Abstract:

I examine prisons and schools as disciplinary institutions bound by correctional ideology and show how their mutual engagement in dominating practices sacrifices the path of academic advancement to the politics of harsh discipline and punishment in the “era of “get tough” legislation. I consider how the culture of enforcement, as it operates at school, influences individual life chances for productive citizenship and compromises the potential for minorities and women to live their lives free of subordinating power relations and correctional control. My research closely links the public school system to the criminal justice system by tracing their extensive collaborations and affinities. Using interpretive methods, I focus on a public school that opened at a prison in New Orleans, Louisiana that served students who were not guilty of a crime, but were being punished for minor non-violent school disciplinary infractions. With this case, which is contextualized by a broader national study, I strive to reveal the way in which harsh school discipline reproduces current power relations by reinforcing the physical and symbolic forms of authority while reinscribing subordinate positions for racial minorities
