SCHOOL SAFETY IN MAINE – EDUCATION COMMISSIONER STEVE BOWEN

by

This has been a week of profound sadness, and also great hope. Many leaders in our communities, states, and our nation have spoken with great passion and wisdom about how best to protect our children. I was very heartened to hear Maine Education Commissioner Bowen’s responses to questions about school safety as a guest on Maine Public Radio’s “Maine Calling”. He spoke about the need for action based on best practices, and not knee-jerk reactions. He also emphasized that our schools need to be welcoming to students, parents and the community. You can listen to the complete broadcast here.
