Education expert Henry Giroux tells Bill public schools are suffering from an overemphasis on academic testing as teachers are stripped of their powers, in schools with disciplinary systems that resemble prisons. “The discipline, particularly in these urban schools for the poor, it’s not controlled by the administration, they’re controlled by the police.” Giroux tells Bill. ”This is an expression of a racist logic that has now seeped directly into schools.”
