In Chapter 3 Carla Shedd focuses on individuals who act as brokers in urban institutions. She notes that there is a symbiotic relationship among urban neighborhoods, public education, and criminal justice. In the name of justice, and often in the name of protecting America’s most vulnerable residents, the nurturing arm of the state, she says, now looks more like the punishing arm of the state. It is critical, Shedd contends, that we empirically trace the long reach of the justice system, its links with central social institutions, and the identities/attributes of key racial agents in order to put our public systems back on track to fulfill their stated missions.
