Students across Cincinnati Public Schools are calling for the removal of police from the school district. During a regular board meeting on Monday, students voiced their requests from home and just outside the building where the meeting took place.
Yousif Munir was one of those students. He’s with the Young Activists Coalition and said that police “disproportionately target Black and brown students.” He also criticized a draft of the district’s anti-racism policy.
“We want you to make a good decision,” Munir said. “We want you to implement transformative and restorative justice in our CPS schools because your students deserve better and your students deserve justice, not an anti-racism policy that doesn’t begin to mention the police.”
