Turning US Schools Into Prisons

Cops are becoming our children's guidance counselors:

This week, the United States Department of Education (DOE) released a collection of survey data from all 95,000 public schools in America. According to the DOE, the 2013-14 Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) is a survey of all public schools and school districts in the United States. The CRDC measures student access to courses, programs, instructional and other staff, and resources - as well as school climate factors, such as student discipline and bullying and harassment - that impact education equity and opportunity for students.

The trove of data highlights a frightening state of affairs in which public schools now find themselves.

One of the trends shown in the data is the removal of guidance counselors. According to a report in the Washington Post, high school counselors often have tough jobs. They keep track of their students’ progress toward graduation. They help students apply to college and navigate the financial aid process. They also help kids navigate their lives outside of school, which can be made complex by poverty, violence and family trouble. And because counselors often are one of the first positions to be cut when budgets get tight, there are almost never enough to go around. The national average is close to 500 students per school counselor; many students have no counselor at all.While the data shows that students have declining access to a kind and caring role model to guide them through their high school careers, the number of students who have access to a police officer is growing.

A whopping 1.6 million (K – 12th grade) students attended a school that employs a law enforcement officer - but has no counselor.

According to the CRDC report, which counted cops in schools for the very first time, 24 percent of elementary schools and 42 percent of high schools have armed police officers. In schools with higher concentrations of minorities that number skyrockets.

It seems that schools in America are starting to more closely resemble prisons than learning facilities. Think about it - children are locked in behind steel doors all day long as armed agents of the State patrol the grounds. A few minutes out of the day, the students are given a little yard time - and again, they are kept under the watch of armed state agents.

And when they go to work (if they can find a job), their employer and their government will watch them 24/7 to ensure they never stray too far from what Big Brother wants them to do.

Add to this the social pressures of the new religion, and you have what is becoming a GLOBAL prison:
