Ninety-six percent of students arrested were either black or Latino. 74 percent of those arrested were male.
An average of four students are arrested and seven summoned each day over the course of the 216 high school and 209 middle school days.
NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman said in a statement:
“We’ve now collected a year’s worth of data demonstrating how the impact of heavy-handed policing in city schools falls squarely on the shoulders of black students and young men, who are being subjected to a disproportionate number of arrests at school. If the Bloomberg administration is serious about helping young men of color succeed, then it must address these disparities and focus more resources on educating children, not arresting them.”
