Police in the Hallways

The conclusion summarizes the main point as discussed in this book—that aggressive implementation of zero tolerance and order maintenance policies have created a flow of students into the criminal justice system, especially as these actions often inspire oppositional behavior in the students as a way of maintaining their dignity and self-assertion. An analysis of this behavior from the students’ perspectives and at the micro level can reveal the shortcomings of current institutional policies and practices. However, zero tolerance and order maintenance only constitute two of the many social and economic realities plaguing the youths from low-income urban families. In order to consider alternative possibilities, we must pay closer attention to the experiences and perspectives of the people most affected by these policies and practices.

Keywords:   criminal justice system, low-income urban families, zero tolerance, order maintenance, oppositional behavior
