Minneapolis Schools ENDS Contract With Police

Posted (edited)

The board of Minneapolis Public Schools voted unanimously Tuesday to end the district’s $1.1 million contract with the Minneapolis Police Department after the death of George Floyd, saying the actions of city police officers “run directly counter to the values” of the school district. 

“This vote is about justice,” said Siad Ali, the board’s director, during the meeting Tuesday. “It’s about time we end this contract with the Minneapolis police. They do not meet our values, and therefore, we will have no business with this organization.”

Some 1,600 Minneapolis students responded to a survey sent out by Genene and other student activists, he said in the board meeting Tuesday. More than 90% voted for “total divestment” from the police department.

Defund the police. Glad to see these hateful police are being removed from educational institutions, they are a huge part of the school to prison pipeline.

It's interesting, I was just thinking today that before there were many videos or school security/police tackling students and seeing what the U.S. is facing now is crazy.
