As we grieve the horrific massacre at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, we also think of our families, our students, our communities.
The families of the children and educators who have lost their lives or been threatened by violence in their schools have our thoughts and prayers. But they – and we – need more than that. We need action.
Part of PSEA’s mission statement says that “We are members who promote, protect, and advocate for our schools, students, and professions.”
So we are turning to you – PSEA members – to help us fulfill this mission. Please share your ideas about school safety and help us to identify school safety priorities so we can advocate for them in the General Assembly and throughout state government.
You know what works and what doesn’t in your schools. And you know what policy changes will help ensure that our classrooms, cafeterias, buses, and hallways are safe spaces.
When we asked you to do this in 2018, you replied with thoughtful and original ideas. And policymakers listened. Now we are asking again. Please help. You can make a difference.
