Police in Schools: Racial Justice and True Student Safety?
The question of whether police belong in schools has been a long-debated topic in the United States. With the increased focus on policing generally, the debate has grown more intense. Proponents argue that police can more effectively address student-to-student conflict, such as bullying, and increase overall safety in an age of recurring school shootings. Those who oppose argue that police in schools contribute to the school-to-prison pipeline and result in disparities based on race and/or disability in discipline and arrests, as well as a climate of fear for students of color. Speakers on this program will present the data, discuss the impact of police in schools and examine this issue critically to confront the question of whether police in schools result in enhanced student safety.

Speakers:
- Ky’Eisha W. Penn – Staff Attorney, Advancement Project
- Miriam A. Rollin – Attorney and Director, Education Civil Rights Alliance, National Center for Youth Law
- Maryam Salmanova – Paralegal, IntegrateNYC Peer Defense Program
- Randi Weingarten – President, American Federation of Teachers
- Ashley C. Sawyer (Moderator) – Senior Director of Campaigns, Girls for Gender Equity
