De-Manufacturing Consent with Guillermo Jimenez- The Militarization of American Public Schools

Guillermo Jimenez Presents John W. Whitehead

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent Guillermo is joined by John Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and the founder and president of the Rutherford Institute.

We discuss the current state of American public schools and how zero-tolerance policies have criminalized an entire generation of young students. We touch on the case of Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old Irving High School freshman who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, and the way the story has been largely misrepresented in the mainstream media.

Whitehead shares various examples of students across the country who have been wrongfully arrested, and explains how these are anything but isolated incidents. He also describes the way rights to privacy and other protections are routinely violated in public schools, and the danger in having children trained to live in a police state.

    Listening now. Good info.
    Your take on SB 277 the forced vaccination of school children in California? I’m wondering what the best way to fight this in the courts would be (constitutionally).

    The U.S. Sec. of Education Arne Duncan recently called for schools to shift billions in prison spending to teachers. Duncan acknowledged the school-to-prison pipeline which he was a part of while he was head of the Chicago Public Schools (from article, linked below):

    Duncan said during him tenure in Chicago that he was troubled because “too many” students were ending up in jail. He was stunned when an inquiry showed that most of these students were getting arrested during school hours and inside the city’s schools. Most arrests in Chicago schools, he said, were for nonviolent misdemeanors.

    “I know no one…had set out to criminalize the behavior of our students, or to start them down a path of incarceration. But those were the facts,” Duncan said. “Those calls to police, to put kids in jail? We were making them.”

  6. i hope the new boiling frogs post has a reporter dedicated to our children and following the kinds of cases this attorney is speaking of. this is serious enough and weighs on all of us with serious consequence for the future generations, and needs that kind of dedication.
    i hope News Bud can hear my plea…
    information and revealing the coruption, abuse and misuse of power in our schools is the only way we can stop this. this entire system must stop. the attorney’s acknowladgement that this too is really out-of-control because of big money is so sickening and disturbing.
    If there is something that wakes us up— GOod god, let it be this.
