New York City to Fund Private Schools' Security
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio last week signed a measure to spend up to $20 million on security guards at private and religious schools.
De Blasio said he believes it will help police and other agencies "keep our communities safer." The City Council voted last month to reimburse nonpublic schools with at least 300 students for expenses to hire unarmed security guards.
The New York Civil Liberties Union said the action amounts to unconstitutional government support for religious institutions.
