As major gun control legislation sits stalled in Congress, an NRA task force is calling for armed personnel in every public school. For details of the plan and how it fits into the debate on preventing violence, Judy Woodruff talks to Asa Hutchinson, author of the report, and Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
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.
