A fight to build trust with school police
from Education Week
To hear some teachers and students tell it, the St. Paul school system was out of control in the 2015-2016 school year, and in dire need of action. Fights broke out in classrooms and high school hallways. Students assaulted staff members. School police officers arrested students for the slightest offenses and treated them with gross disrespect. Faced with student walkouts, a threatened teachers' strike, and the firing of its longtime superintendent, the 38,000-student district has since rolled out measures aimed at ensuring the safety of staff and students and creating an environment conducive to learning.
