For many years, PSEA has advocated for the prevention and elimination of violence in schools. PSEA members have spoken out in support of policies aimed at preventing school violence, drafting emergency response plans, and requiring background clearances for people who enter school buildings as well as implementing comprehensive security measures in every school. PSEA also supports educational programs that emphasize gun safety and increased awareness of the need to keep firearms secured.
PSEA will focus on state-level policies and supports that our members believe will make a real difference in Pennsylvania. PSEA President Dolores McCracken outlined policy suggestions during a March 15 public hearing on school safety before the PA House Education Committee.
