More School Districts Sever Ties With Police. Will Others Follow?

 


School boards in St. Paul, Minn .; Oakland, Calif .; Seattle; San Francisco, and two San Jose, Calif.-area districts all voted in recent days to suspend or dismantle school policing programs—a wave of action that started with the a historic June 2 decision by the Minneapolis district. 

Simultaneously, a different story played out in Los Angeles and Chicago—respectively the nation’s second- and third-largest school districts.

A proposal in Chicago to eliminate its recently overhauled $33 million school policing contract with the city police was narrowly defeated June 24 on a 4-3 vote. And Los Angeles’ board appeared close to paralysis on the issue June 23, with members unable to agree on any of three different plans for the future of its $70 million school police force, which the district has managed since 1984.
