Teaching War and Feeling Fear

Teaching War and Feeling Fear

Public School Reform during the Global War on Terror

(p.15) Chapter 1 Teaching War and Feeling Fear
A Curriculum of Fear

Nicole Nguyen

University of Minnesota Press

The first chapter locates Milton High School within national efforts to install militarized regimes of discipline in public education through the corporate takeover of schools, wage war under the banner of national security, and draw young people into the war-making business through fear by examining the genealogies of neoliberal school reform, zero-tolerance school policies, school militarization, and fear in U.S. politics. Knitting these strands together lends itself to an understanding of how the Milton school staff thought about the shifting purposes of education, the needs of their students, and the role of national security in their daily lives.
