‘I Don’t Want to Hear It’: Florida School Board Confronted Over Relationship Between School Leaders and Students After Black Girl Is Knocked Unconscious

A now-viral video out of central Florida depicted Taylor Bracey of Osceola County being body-slammed by a Liberty High School school resource officer on Jan. 26 as the 16-year-old Black girl reportedly was involved in an altercation with other students. This week citizens and several community organizations showed up to a Lake County School Board meeting in Tavares, Florida, to voice their concerns about the relationship between school leaders and Black students.
