While most schools have been bolstering security after the Parkland shooting one month ago, schools in NYC are apparently doing the opposite, ordering armed officers from public schools in the city, to be replaced by unarmed school safety agents and the occasional visit from armed officers making routine patrols through their communities.

“It’s ridiculous,” stated Linda Lovett, co-president of the PTA at Francis Lewis High School in Queens, according to the New York Post. “All over the country they are telling you ‘arm the teachers, get an officer in your school.’ New York City had a designated officer and they are actually cutting the program … they are making us less secure.”
