How Black Lives Matter Changed the MCPD

Against the backdrop of the Black Lives Matter movement, the divide between police officers and the black community has never been more apparent. As people of color protest racial profiling and police brutality, applications to become a police officer are on the decline.

A Correction from our Print Edition: “Civic Engagement” days not yet MCPS policy

In our December edition, The Tattler covered the MCPS proposed Civic Engagement policy (a policy which would allow students three excused "civic engagement"days) as if it were an already established policy.
