Creating safe schools is a public health and human rights Issue
Our children's psychological, emotional and physical well-being and their education play a critical role in shaping the American future. No one truly knows the impact violence has on our children's learning and well-being. Billions of dollars spent on reducing school violence's has not curtailed the 2-to-3 million cases of school violence annually. Up to now the primary strategy has been to deal with school violence after it occurs. Sadly there is little support to discover or deploy proactive methods of reducing school violence.
We at NoSchoolViolence.org offers different strategy. By treating school violence as epidemic and human rights problem, we focus on it proactively. Call us unconventional for being the only organization to combine scientific research and the latest data technologies to reveal the nature, causes, spread, and control potential of school violence. This method is similar to how the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and major American corporations, like Amazon, American Express, General Electric, IBM, Capitol One, Netflix, Apple, and Starbucks, use the latest data tools to learn more about their client's needs.
We want to empower parents, educators and mental health providers with ways of reducing school violence. Our award-winning Lantern® is a free, web-app search tool that provides users new ways of understanding how changes in a child’s behaviors connects to statistically meaningful kinds of violence.
