When victims of oppression are considered inherently inferior, little thought is given to the imposition of psychological abuse or the persistent and often capricious measures of establishing control. Even attitudes regarding physical punishment become morally blurred. While many documentaries have shed light on the chronic educational famine of the inner-city child, there has been no film to date that deals with the inescapable oppressive abuse that all children in America, regardless of race or class, face. Through zero tolerance, the excessive and invasive use of security measures, abuse of perscription drugs, and an educational system that is modeled after the penal system, a war has truly been waged on the kids of America.
