Stovall, a Professor of Educational Policy Studies and African-American Studies at UIC argues that black people “get scraped the most” in “schools and jails” due to the whiteness of law and education. Stovall claims that the black population is “engaging in a fight against white supremacy” in charter schools. According to Stovall, strict classroom instruction is actually a twist on “classroom management,” with the whole system designed to examine whether “black boys can be domesticated.”

“There’s always this thing around the control of black lives,” he said. “Black lives are thought to be safest when they are controlled.”
