Minneapolis school board + union call on district to sever ties with police department

In the wake of the police murder of George Floyd, the Minneapolis school board and union moved to sever ties with the police, recognizing that SROs (special resource officers) in schools are harmful to students and the community. A similar ask was made by the president of the University of Minnesota. We celebrate these as brave and necessary steps towards the eventual abolition of the police!
