Singing chants and bearing signs that read “Counselors Not Cops” and “Students Can’t Read If Students Can’t Breathe,” more than 200 students, parents, teachers and City Council members rallied outside City Hall on Wednesday, before marching a few blocks to New York Police Department headquarters at 1 Police Plaza. Their demand: remove all police from public schools.
