Student Arrests in Allegheny County Schools: The Need for Transparency and Accountability
Student Arrests in Allegheny County Schools: The Need for Transparency and Accountability is a new research report published by the ACLU of Pennsylvania. The report finds that student arrests or referrals to police occur more often than are documented by schools. The report also finds that students in Allegheny County are more likely to be arrested at school than students elsewhere in Pennsylvania. Arrests and referrals fall disproportionately on Black students and students with disabilities.
