Freeing schools from violence
Placeholder Image
You may have seen signs adorning schools in our communities declaring them "Violence Free Zones." For some this may prompt questions about how we have come to the point where such signs even are necessary.For others, the signs of increasing school disruptions signal a call to action to make a real difference in the attitudes and actions taking place in Wisconsin schools. As we complete Safe Schools Week in Wisconsin, it is fitting to acknowledge the work of school officials who are attempting to imbue a culture and curriculum to make schools safer.State Sen. John Lehman and members of the Joint Legislative Council-Special Committee on School Safety that he chaired are to be commended for their work in developing Senate Bill 154.
