We want to believe our schools are safe, but how safe are they?

Especially in light of the recent, tragic shootings in towns like Springfield, OR, Conyers, GA and Littleton, CO, parents are running scared. Each year in schools across the United States, more than 3 million crimes are committed, over 9,000 fires break out, and hundreds of thousands of students are injured. Administrators are overwhelmed, underfunded, and sometimes unresponsive. It's time to revisit what we can do to combat a rash of violence, and make schools safer in general - from the bus to the playground, the lunchroom to the science lab.

Safe at School gives you the knowledge and skills you need to take action, be heard and get results.

It covers every school safety problem you can think of - guns, drugs, supervision, disaster preparation, sexual harassment, asbestos in the air, lead in the water, bullies, class trips, school maintenance, and many more. Step-by-step actions plans explain how to identify safety problems at your child's school, how to form a parent safety group (there's strength in numbers), and how to hold schools accountable for your child's safety.

Safe at School is the best kind of bedside reading - the kind that makes you sleep more soundly at night knowing you're taking steps to ensure the safety of your child.
