Safer Schools Equals Safer Students
More law enforcement and mental health personnel in schools as well as stepping up building security were among the proposals offered by a coalition aiming to prevent violence in Michigan schools.
Among the coalition's recommendations:
1. Adding more armed police officers, often called school resource officers, from sheriff and police departments to schools.
2. Bringing in more school mental health professions to help identify potential problems before they become threats of violence.
3. Supporting grants to make school buildings more secure.
The coalition is currently seeking legislators to support their proposals. Here's more information from the Lansing State Journal.
