What Does ‘Defund the Police’ Mean for Schools?

Amidst the many conversations about defunding the police, on March 11 at 12 p.m. CT, two UIC faculty members will discuss what it means for schools. Nicole Nguyen, PhD is an Associate Professor of Social Foundations of Education in the College of Education and David Stovall, PhD teaches Black Studies and Criminology, Law & Justice in Liberal Arts and Sciences. Together they’ll walk us through how policing happens in schools and what a police-free school could look like. View the PowerPoint here.
