A Prison Called School
Creating Effective Schools for All LearnersBook - 2015
Addresses the complex issues that place many students at a disadvantage as they try to survive yet another hurdle in school life. Although some students are able to navigate and succeed in the current system, other students struggle to survive a system that is unable to meet their needs. For those students, school can feel like a twelve-year prison sentence. Students who cannot fit the outdated, one-size-fits-all model, are further penalized by a system that blames the struggling student rather than holding the institution accountable. For students to thrive in school, the system, not the students, must change in deep and substantial ways.
