Discipline Problems Cause Schools to Call for Backup—From Police

More and more school districts in America are using the police to assist with student discipline problems. Student misbehavior has grown so bad that many school administrators feel they cannot control students without serious backup. As a result, station houses are now becoming off-site school detention centers.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico, alone, over 900 students were arrested between 2009 and 2010. In Texas, police issued nearly 300,000 “Class C misdemeanor” tickets to students in 2010. That number includes children as young as 6 years old.
