NYC Police Spend a Lot of Time Arresting Students of Color

From July to September, a period of time that covers summer break for New York City students, the police arrested 63 students in schools. 59 of those students were Black or Latino.

And for some reason the police department was reluctant to release the demographic breakdown of their in-school arrests. They have not provided similar information regarding the 182 summonses they issued during this period, though the Student Safety Act requires it.
