On behalf of the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools, Director Keron Blair has released the following statement regarding the video of a police officer's violent interaction with a student at Spring Valley High School in South Carolina:
"The video of officer Ben Fields dragging an African American female student across the room broke my heart. I think it broke the heart of every student, parent and educator who watched it. It was too much, and so much about what we saw was just wrong and unacceptable!

Dyett Hunger Strike Ends!
Inspiring strike is a game changer in education organizing.
After 34 days, the hunger strike for Dyett High School has officially ended. The brave parents, teachers and community leaders who put their bodies on the line successfully pushed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to reopen Dyett as an open-enrollment public school. This is a victory for all who care about public education!
