No More Talk About Gun Control to Prevent School Shootings

Following a rush of similar moves across the country, the Seattle School Board voted Wednesday to suspend a partnership that stations five armed police officers at Seattle schools.

Board members unanimously approved the measure.

The suspension is just one part of a broader proposal to improve school climate for Black students, who last year made up nearly half of students referred to police across the district but just 14% of enrollment at Seattle Public Schools (SPS), according to district data.

That's about the same fraction as black crime.  I see no reason to assume special treatment.
