Example text

It is a place of safety and is resourced for young people in a way that the home and street cannot be . . . [But] . . . Most schools do not seem like places designed to satisfy children’s expressed wishes. Edward Blishen, reading children’s competition essays on ‘the school I’d like,’ admits ‘the image of the prison returned to me again and again’ (Blishen, 1969:14). A sad truth? (pp. 7–8) Clearly the essays referred to were written decades ago, but does this make them any less relevant today?

The underlying message was that engaging young people in ‘constructive activities’ (Audit Commission, 1996, p. 96) in order to prevent crime was more cost-effective. This led to programmes such as ‘caution plus’. In this particular programme, young people were not prosecuted as offenders but were sent to a youth offending team (YOT), who would then refer them to a programme of activities aimed at targeting the ‘offending behaviour’ (Muncie, 2002). Other early interventions, such as child curfews, child safety orders and ASBOs, were aimed at targeting the ‘at-risk’ or ‘unruly’ groups of young people.

In some ways the increasing use of ‘technologies, discourses, and metaphors of crime and criminal justice’ (Simon, 2007, p. 4) – and of ASB – are a response to this perceived, and in many cases actual, lack of power. The result is that student misbehaviour is rebranded as ASB, and the role of educators becomes ever more entwined with issues of community safety and crime control – a situation enhanced by the physical presence of school-based police officers. Over the past decade ASB has grown to prominence in British politics and policy.
