According to new research done by the University of Delaware and the University of California, Irvine, schools that have a higher population of minorities are far more likely to have to pass through a metal detector when going to school than a predominately white school, even if the schools are equally safe.
The two universities presented their finding in the American Sociological Association’s annual meeting on August 20th.
“It’s not that the more violent schools get metal detectors, or even the urban schools get metal detectors—though that’s true,” said co-author Aaron Kupchik, an associate professor in sociology and criminal justice at the University of Delaware. “It’s that schools with more students of color are more likely to get metal detectors, at every level, even elementary levels.”
