"An expansive, insightful and infuriating documentary about police brutality in the public education system" — The Guardian

When students at Spring Valley High School post a video on social media of a School Resource Officer throwing a classmate out of her desk, a global media firestorm ensues. On These Grounds goes beyond the viral video to speak directly with the officer and student at the heart of the controversy, as well as other students, educators, activists, and experts to provide a nuanced, thorough, and revealing analysis of this alarming incident.

By examining the historical, cultural, and legal contexts that allowed such an event to occur, On These Grounds offers the opportunity to consider the laws, policies, and practices that dictate that way students are disciplined in the classroom, and equips viewers with the information relevant to reach their own conclusions about how best to make schools safe and productive for every student.
