Why you and representatives from your school or organization should attend?
Michael Males a professor at University of California points to sources of school violence beyond attitudes and behaviors of Children. “More than any past generation today’s kids are far more likely to grow up with parents who abuse drugs, get arrested, go to prison, etc.” School violence needs to be addressed but it is also important to respect the hopes and rights of the majority of students who are neither perpetrators nor victims of school violence and who want nothing more than to receive a good education in a safe school environment.
Registration is limited so sign up early.
