Student Surveillance, Racial Inequalities, and Implicit Racial Bias

Student Surveillance, Racial Inequalities, and Implicit Racial Bias

This article presents data on school surveillance practices, including an original empirical analysis of restricted data recently released by the U.S. Department of Education after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Paralleling other disturbing trends of inequality in our public school system, these results and other empirical analyses reveal that schools serving primarily students of color are more likely to rely on more intense surveillance measures than other schools.
