A small team of U.S. specialists will head to Nigeria to help efforts in locating more than 270 girls who were kidnapped from a boarding school — a provocative attack that has drawn international outrage. To examine expectations for U.S. assistance, Jeffrey Brown talks to Jon Temin of the United States Institute of Peace and Heather Murdock of The Christian Science Monitor.
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.
