A safe learning environment is essential for students of all ages. Without it, they are unable to focus on learning the skills needed for a successful education and future.
When violence is part of the educational setting, all students are affected in some way. Even though a child may not be the actual victim of violence in school, there is a very good chance that he or she will witness violent acts throughout the educational years.
Safety in schools is necessary to support the academic success of each child, giving them the opportunity to learn and achieve in a safe and nurturing environment.
Innovative techniques on school safety promote increased learning, feelings of school unity, higher levels of pro-social behavior and decreased levels of violence.
