The numbers of cops in schools is growing, which often means that instead of a detention or a timeout, routine misbehavior can result in arrest and criminal charges — with children of color disproportionately impacted.

Synopsis: The emerging science of implicit bias is one of the most promising fields for animating the human change that makes social change possible. The social psychologist Mahzarin Banaji is one of its primary architects. She understands the mind as a “difference-seeking machine” that helps us order and navigate the overwhelming complexity of reality.

In 1940, a white developer wanted to build a neighborhood in Detroit. So he asked the US Federal Housing Administration to back a loan.
