Brooklyn parents advocate for cut in NYPD budget to fully fund schools
Dozens of Brooklyn parents came together Thursday to advocate for a cut in the NYPD budget and to use that money to fully fund schools.
Parents held up signs and said they want police-free schools when students eventually return to the classrooms -- as well as different security measures to be taken instead.
The rain also didn’t stop people from going to P.S. 705 and P.S. 321 to spread the word to take action by writing to Mayor Bill De Blasio in a tweet.
A petition has also been started online and has received over 20,000 signatures so far.
Parents tell News 12 they are considering coming out to rally every week to spread the word.
