Assault At Spring Valley Report: An analysis of police violence against Black and Latine students in public schools

In this report, we present the findings of a combined quantitative/qualitative data analysis of over 200 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 helps us better understand the extent to which school policing jeopardizes the physical safety and health of Black and Latine students, girls and young women, students with disabilities, and students attending predominately low-income schools.
