What type of offences and arrests are being made at schools by police in school?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: City Schools that cut cops tend to be Whiter, reports an element of racism involved in the decisions whether to retain a police officer in the school with these comments.
… “those (White) schools don’t need cops but black students do?” that reflect racism and a belief that Black students need to be policed.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb and my amazement of why there seems to be kept secret what type of arrests or offences are school police making on school grounds.
“Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
pay attention and gain understanding.
I give you sound learning,
so do not forsake my teaching.
For I too was a son to my father,
still tender, and cherished by my mother.
Then he taught me, and he said to me,
“Take hold of my words with all your heart;
keep my commands, and you will live.” (Proverbs 4:1-4)
What’s My Point?
The above wisdom proverb advice is a father is responsible to teach their children. However, in our contemporary times, a very high percentage of children are now living in single parent homes absent a father’s influence to help teach the three things mentioned in the following statement.
“Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”
My point is that if perhaps a child is attending a school and drugs, gangs, shootings, beatings, robberies, rapes, etc., etc., are occurring by peers, I rather doubt parents will agree that a police officer presence is not needed.
In My Opinion
There are statistical police reports of the number of arrests being made in public schools.
However, the reports are absent the information of what type of arrests are being made.
I wonder if this information would be made public, would parents will agree with school boards that police are not needed?
Or if parents were more informed of the recent Supreme Court decision that it is legal for States to fund private religious schools, would the parents join in to support school choice or school vouchers.
In other words, what is happening to threaten or withhold information of what is happening in schools in regard to criminal behavior a secret from parents?
Is it perhaps because parents would get upset and start demanding what they want taught to their children, but special interests don’t want made public?
In addition, lets pray that there will not be any repetition of mass school shootings that have occurred and the regrets that would follow by school boards who decided against police presence in their schools.

Would you be interested in knowing what types of arrests are taking place and what peer influences your children have to contend while attending a school mandated, they must attend because of lack of school choice or school vouchers in your State?
If this information was known by parents how will they react and voice their input to decide if they want police in the schools that they are sending their children? Public schools where parents have no other choice where to send their children because they cannot afford private religious schools.
Why is school violence being kept secret and is racism the real reason or is politics and special interests the real reason?
Is part of the reason Black parents never attending a private religious school the reason why they do not march for school choice or school vouchers, and perhaps even the reason why Black Schools either want or need police presence more than White Schools as reported in the article?
