Mass and Intrusive Searches of Students in Public Schools: A Critical Perspective.
Ehrensal, Patricia A.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v2 n3 p242-55 Jul 1996
In examining student searches from a critical theory perspective, one considers who is being searched, who does the searching and by what authority, and how searching reinforces existing power structures. This article addresses these questions and related concepts (discipline, criminal/deviant behavior, punishment, and rehabilitation) by applying critical theorists' findings to mass, intrusive searches in public schools.
