But one recent report, using Education and Justice Department data, suggests schools are actually covering up violent crimes from the police. “The Department of Education and the Department of Justice say […]

2011: The year professional school safety public policy died

Posted by on January 1, 2012

Anything remotely close to comprehensive and balanced federal school safety public policy and funding died in 2011.  Minus a handful of exceptions, if that many, the same can be said for state level school safety efforts.  And far too many local school districts are not far behind.

How the anti-bullying movement is setting kids up to fail

Posted by on December 19, 2011

The world will be a perfect place if we just pass anti-bullying laws that outlaw bullying, incivility, intolerance, dirty looks, disagreements that are not pleasant, and just about anything else that is not Kumbaya.  At least that seems to be the perspective of anti-bullying activists who have jumped on the bullying bandwagon the past few years.

Police in Schools are Prevention, Not Cuff-n-Stuff, Programs

Posted by on September 19, 2011

Civil rights advocates who portray police in schools as overly arresting kids are simply wrong. Police officers who work in schools, commonly known as School Resource Officers (SROs), generally perform more as prevention programs where officers prevent  incidents versus taking on a “cuff’n’stuff” role with the intent of increasing student arrests. That’s not stopping civil rights and other […]
