Students must be held accountable and the Mayor's soft approach is not the right direction. Requiring Principals get permission from DOE Central to suspend students who deserve that discipline to play with statistics is simply a policy that fails the entire school community.

"More than 10,000 teachers, principals or other school staff were assaulted or threatened by students last year, The Post reported Sunday — a 4.5 percent rise over the year before and 11.8 percent over the year before that. Over the three years, these incidents resulted in injury to 8,253 school staff."

Glad to see the NYC Council is working to improve school security by installing cameras in all NYC Public Schools. This has been an effort Community Education C...ouncil 31 has been advocating for since December 2012 as part of our Comprehensive School Safety Plan.
In December 2012 Community Education Council 31 introduced a Comprehensive School Safety and Security proposal that included;
* Locking ALL doors
* Installing buzzer entry - video capture technology on the main entrances to school buildings,
* Improving School Building Response Team training
* Updating School Public Address systems
* Designating retired police officers as special patrol officers to supplement school security.

In 2014 the NYS Legislature and Governor Cuomo included these proposals in NYS Law. They authorized grant funding for schools to improve safety like cameras and buzzers. They increased training opportunities and frequency of training for Building Response Teams. Additionally, they authorized School Districts in New York State to hire retired police officers as school resource officers. NYC adopted some of the proposals, updating Public Address systems, and increasing Building Response Team training. The city is reluctant to install buzzer entry and photo capture cameras at the main entrances as well as consider utilizing retired police officers to supplement school security.
