Foley On Sandy Hook Aftermath Discussion Panel
Last week, on Wednesday, December 19, 2012, Newport Mesa Unified School District Trustee Katrina Foley participated in an online panel which was moderated by Los Angeles Times columnist David Lazarus and included expert psychologists Cathy Paine and Stephen Brock.
ON THE HEELS OF THE NMUSD TRUSTEE MEETING
This event took place one day following the meeting of the NMUSD Trustees which I wrote about HERE and which Foley mentions during her part of this short, 15 minute discussion.
Listening to what these folks have to say may provide some perspective for you on managing the post-Sandy Hook era with your children. You can view the discussion HERE.
A CASE AGAINST SROs
Separately, in my previous post about School Resource Officers reader Bruce Krochman suggested that I read a report by the Justice Policy Institute, HERE, titled "Education Under Arrest: The Case Against Police In Schools", which I did. Much of what is presented in that report seems counter to my perception of our experience locally, so I've asked for some help interpreting the report as it may, or may not, apply to our local schools. I'll report more on that once I've gathered more data.
