In the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., the NewsHour asked students from 45 schools around the country to provide advice on how to prevent future shootings at schools. Ray Suarez presents some of these high schoolers’ takes on the gun debate, which were collected through NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs.
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.
