NYCLU to City: Let Educators Handle School Discipline

A call by the New York Civil Liberties Union to return school discipline to the province of educators, rather than the NYPD:

the police force in the schools has increased by 35 percent to more than 5,240 people, representing the fifth-largest police force in the nation. (City schools employ approximately 3,000 guidance counselors.) * * * As a result, incidents of children being wrongfully arrested and mistreated by police personnel in the city’s schools are disturbingly common.
