Gun control advocates took to the streets of Washington to demand tougher gun laws only days after a mass shooting that killed 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut. Until the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, lawmakers were reluctant to propose tougher controls on guns. But as Jeff Swicord reports, that could change.
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.
