#AssaultAt Spring Valley Report

In this report, we present the findings of a combined quantitative/qualitative data analysis of 285 incidents of police assaults between 2011 and 2021. This analysis dramatically illustrates how school policing places students, especially Black students, at a significant risk of criminalization and assault, as evidenced by the heartbreaking, far-too frequent videos of school police officers using physical force on children. Our analysis of these #AssaultAt incidents help us better understand the extent to which school policing jeopardizes the physical safety and health of Black and Latine students, girls, students with disabilities, and students attending predominately low-income schools.
