Advocates working to dismantle the School to Prison Pipeline are sending a strong message to federal policymakers about how to keep school safe without enhancing police presence

This week LDF and the Dignity in Schools Campaign are leading a national coalition of students, parents, teachers, researchers and legal advocates & activists working to dismantle the School to Prison Pipeline.  The groups have assembled in Washington, DC to tell Congress, the Administration and other policymakers that adding more police officers to schools is not the answer for keeping schools safe in the aftermath of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
