Caught Up : Girls, Surveillance, and Wraparound Incarceration (Paperback) (Jerry Flores)
About this item
From home, to school, to juvenile detention center, and back again. Follow the lives of 50 Latina girls living 40 miles outside of Los Angeles, California, as they are inadvertently caught up in the school-to-prison pipeline. Their experiences in the connected programs between “El Valle” Juvenile Detention Center and “Legacy” Community School reveal the accelerated fusion of California schools and institutions of confinement. The girls participate in well-intentioned wraparounds services designed to provide them with support at home, at school and in the detention center. But these services may more closely resemble the phenomenon of wraparound incarceration, where students, despite leaving the actual detention center, cannot escape the surveillance of formal detention, and are thereby slowly pushed away from traditional schooling and a productive life-course.
