No Police in Schools

‘No Police in Schools’ is a community coalition group led by Kids of Colour and the Northern Police Monitoring Project. We are united by our shared concern over the increasing presence of police in Greater Manchester’s schools. We are parents, teachers, young people, youth workers, community members, academics, and activists, and we believe that there should be No Police in Schools.
