Getting SROs out of schools is a red herring. The school to prison pipeline begins with the teacher who doesn’t look like her/his students and has a fear-based automatically punitive response to their Black and Brown students.

re: rejecting corporate (and presumably foundational philanthropy?), how does that happen? So many of our communities have become beholden to traditional streams of funding, elements of capitalism to keep doors open and lights on, etc. How do we reckon with this without further investing harmful systems??

Getting SROs out of schools is a red herring. The school to prison pipeline begins with the teacher who doesn’t look like her/his students and has a fear-based automatically punitive response to their Black and Brown students. The SROs serve at their behest.
