School police removals get a second look across America | #hacking | #aihp

RETHINK THE POLICE — Cities that pulled police out of K-12 schools following George Floyd’s 2020 murder are facing pressure to reverse course and decelerate a movement that has gained support from progressives, civil rights groups and researchers.

President Joe Biden and his rivals in next year’s election are also backing the blue as a burst of school violence alters the politics of school policing.

— “Almost everywhere that we’re working with partners and young people, we’re seeing a reversal back at this point — if districts ever started taking steps toward dismantling school police infrastructure,” said Katherine Dunn, a former Education Department civil rights attorney who is now a program director at the Advancement Project organization.

“That’s from all parties,” said Dunn, whose group helped found the National Campaign for Police Free Schools. “This consensus among the presidential candidates has felt like a consensus at every level: School boards, state education officials, legislators, et cetera.”

IT’S MONDAY, MAY 15. WELCOME TO WEEKLY EDUCATION. If you missed it: Biden denounced white supremacy as the “most dangerous terrorist threat” to the nation in his commencement address to Howard University’s graduating class this weekend. “And I’m not just saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU,” Biden told students. “I say this wherever I go.”
