This week we discuss the twin assaults of COVID-19 and police brutality in the United States, and some fundamental challenges both assaults expose. And, I recently spoke with Professor Jessica Calarco of Indiana University about her recent paper titled “Avoiding Us versus Them: How Schools’ Dependence on Privileged ‘Helicopter’ Parents Influences Enforcement of Rules.” The paper was published in the most recent issue of the American Sociological Review.

Segment 1 -- Jessica Calarco on “Avoiding Us versus Them: How Schools' Dependence on Privileged 'Helicopter' Parents Influences Enforcement of Rules."

Segment 2 -- Sociological observations on COVID-19, police brutality, and some challenges these twin assaults are exposing.
