Anger, lawlessness and calls for violence have long been the hallmark of anti-police activism in New York City. That has been no different over the past month in spite of the fact that hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers were able to make their opinions on police reform known peacefully through this year’s ballot proposal.

Yet while the city’s professional agitators continuously set their sights on the NYPD, perhaps it would be more in the public’s interest if they expanded their web of contempt to an agency actually failing to deliver on its core mission: the Department of Education.

For those shouting “f--k the police,” the common theory goes like this: The institutional problems of the agency produce disproportionate lifelong harms for black and brown New Yorkers. While mistakes made by the DOE lack the instant life-or-death consequences of those of the NYPD, the condemnation of countless New York City students to years of failing schools and ineffective teachers also has had the net effect of lifelong problems for those they’ve failed.

Children get one bite at the education apple, and for many New York City public school students of color, the DOE fails them.
