Former sports star Brian Taylor has taken a message of hard work that he learned on the basketball court to the inner city classroom. Taylor was a top basketball player at Princeton University, and he later played professionally. He is now an administrator with a group of rigorous schools for minority students in Los Angeles. And as Mike O’Sullivan reports, he is making a difference in their lives.
School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety.
