I just made up a new word. Prisonification (n): The act of making something more like a prison.
Instead of putting resources into supporting counselors and restorative practices in schools, members of Congress and school districts around the country are instead proposing guns and guards as the solution to making schools safer.
Safer... like a prison.
If that doesn't sound like a safe learning environment to you, join the National Week of Action, April 1-5, 2013!
