Violence In Schools

Violence in schools has spiked to a troubling level since the Pandemic. The schools are no longer the safe haven they should be. If we don't work together to change this trajectory we will regret it for the rest of our lives.

Students, Parents, Teachers, Union, Administrators and Educational Community Activists, working as one, can help protect our most valuable assets.

There has to be a "zero tolerance policy" when it comes to violence in our schools. However, we have to be proactive and not reactionary. We just can't throw the baby out with the bath water. We have to engage in granular analysis, as we endeavor to know all we need to know about each individual student.

We need constant feedback from psychologists and mental health experts, as well as civic minded students, who can recognize other students' cries for help, report troubling behavior, and confidentially inform the administration to help interrupt potential violent encounters. 

We have to commit to thoughtfully invest whatever resources are required to keep our students and teachers safe. For, if schools are not safe, no one will show up to teach or learn.
