Your voice can make a critical difference!
The legislature is considering bill SB-453: AAA Classroom Safety and Disruptive Behavior that would help to prevent assaults on teachers.
We need to share your stories with them. Please take a few minutes to write a paragraph or two (or more if you have time) about your experiences.
In your own words, discuss why teacher assault is a major problem in our schools that must be addressed.
