Community members protest for school safety before CPS board meeting | K-12 Education | #schoolsaftey

Teachers, students and other members of the public gathered outside of the Aslin Administration Building prior to the Columbia School Board meeting Monday night, demanding more safety inside district schools.

About 20 protesters stood on the sidewalk in front of the building. Many wore black and held signs reading “Educators for SAFE Schools,” with the Columbia Missouri National Education Association logo. They cheered as cars honked when they drove past.
