Discussion of an authoritarian zero tolerance school

Little robots: behind the scenes in an academy school. An ethnographic study of a 'flagship'academy school with zero tolerance revealing bullying, regimentation, coercion, leading to a toxic environment in which only the compliant can remain. This is the opposite to what we argue, the spectre we argue against.

An excellent review by Les Back (Goldsmiths) here treating discipline here to a psychological version of corporal punishment (caning).
