Following the horrific rampage at a Connecticut elementary school, safety experts are examining what can be done in making schools safer for children and for those who teach them.

It’s a daunting challenge, and one that may have many possible solutions.

Of course, any conversation on improving school safety will undoubtedly reignite old debates and inspire new ones, but the conversation must be had.

Violence in and around schools is becoming far too common. Let’s ensure this latest tragedy marks the turning point that leads to a safer working environment for teachers and a safer learning environment for students.
