Po­lice have no place in schools, say ad­vo­cates

Metro Canada (Toronto) - - News -

Ad­vo­cates are urg­ing Peel Re­gion to fol­low the Toronto Dis­trict School Board’s de­ci­sion to re­move po­lice of­fi­cers from its schools, cit­ing what they call in­tim­i­da­tion faced by Black stu­dents. A re­port found that pro­grams like the one in Peel pre­vent prop­erty dam­age, vi­o­lence and drug use, but a 2016 Peel Re­gion Dis­trict School Board re­port said that Black stu­dents feel marginal­ized and iso­lated in schools in part be­cause of the pres­ence of po­lice of­fi­cers.
