"The Pedagogy of Pathologization analyzes the construction of criminal identities in schools via the intersections of race, gender, class, and disability amid the prevalence of targeted mass incarceration. Focusing uniquely on the pathologization of female students of color, whose voices are frequently engulfed by labels of deviance and disability, a distinct and underrepresented experience of the school-to-prison pipeline is detailed through original, qualitative methodologies. The book's DisCrit framework, grounded in interdisciplinary research, draws on scholarship from education, women's and girl's studies, critical race theory, legal studies, and more."--Provided by publisher.
