Student & staff safety among top concerns in schools

Updated: Feb 24, 2020

A call to action

The Educational Conference Board urges policymakers to act to ensure educational environments are safe and supportive—not only because providing safe schools is the right thing to do, but also because research shows a direct link between success in school and the school environment in which learning takes place. Students are more likely to achieve their full potential in schools that have a positive culture and settings where they feel supported and safe. In other words, positive school climate and safe school environments are significant and necessary to meet the academic and social needs of students.
