The horrific recent mass shootings in public schools have touched off a national debate on school violence and safety. Legislatures across the country are racing to consider new laws without stopping to ask educators, who often risk their own safety to protect their students, what they think we need to create truly safe schools.
NEA, in partnership with VIVA Teachers, launched this site, to hear directly from NEA members, our frontline experts so that we can give our public leaders the true expertise of educators.
