Amendments passed on Student Safety Act!

The New York City Council passed a set of sweeping reforms to the Student Safety Act that will result in increased data reporting on school discipline practices and their impact on our city’s children. The amendments will require, for the first time, reporting by both the NYPD and the Department of Education on the use of metal detectors, handcuffs and restraints in city schools.

Teachers Unite has been a member of the Student Safety Coalition since its beginning. Teachers Unite's Executive Director, Sally Lee, made a statement at a September 29 press conference celebrating the amendment.
