The Militarization of American Public Schools

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.
