We want to believe our schools are safe, but how safe are they? Especially in light of the recent, tragic shootings in towns like Springfield, OR, Conyers, GA and Littleton, CO, parents are running scared. Each year in schools across the United States, more than 3 million crimes are committed, over 9,000 fires break out, and hundreds of thousands of students are injured. Administrators are overwhelmed, underfunded, and sometimes unresponsive. It's time to revisit what we can do to combat a rash of violence, and make schools safer in general - from the bus to the playground, the lunchroom to the science lab. Safe at School gives you the knowledge and skills you need to take action, be heard and get results. It covers every school safety problem you can think of - guns, drugs, supervision, disaster preparation, sexual harassment, asbestos in the air, lead in the water, bullies, class trips, school maintenance, and many more. Step-by-step actions plans explain how to identify safety problems at your child's school, how to form a parent safety group (there's strength in numbers), and how to hold schools accountable for your child's safety. Safe at School is the best kind of bedside reading - the kind that makes you sleep more soundly at night knowing you're taking steps to ensure the safety of your child.

The message of this book enables children to be aware of potential danger as well as how to communicate and respond in a time of crisis.” —Darrell Scott, Founder and President of Rachel’s Challenge “All schools are safe havens for students, but it is critically important for students to report threatening behavior from classmates and to take proper steps when their safety is at risk from outside intruders.

Every story can change a life. Watch a video Growing up isn't easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, making them feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted - even tortured - simply for being themselves. After a number of tragic suicides by LGBT students who were bullied in school, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage uploaded a video to YouTube with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for LGBT youth facing harassment. Speaking openly about the bullying they suffered as teenagers, and how they both went on to lead rewarding adult lives, their video launched the It Gets Better Project YouTube channel and initiated a worldwide phenomenon. With over 6,000 videos posted and over 20 million views in the first three months alone, the world has embraced the opportunity to provide personal, honest and heartfelt support for LGBT youth everywhere. It Gets Better is a collection of expanded essays and new material from celebrities, everyday people and teens who have posted videos of encouragement, as well as new contributors who have yet to post videos to the site. While many of these teens couldn't see a positive future for themselves, we can. We can show LGBT youth the levels of happiness, potential and positivity their lives will reach if they can just get through their teen years. By sharing these stories, It Gets Better reminds teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone - and it WILL get better.

The School Leadership Survival Guide: What to Do When Things Go Wrong, How to Learn from Mistakes, and Why You Should Prepare for the Worst is intended as an uncommon guide for school leaders and a resource they can turn to when confronted with issues they might not normally face in typical practice. The book serves as a bridge between research and day-to-day school leadership, and is intended to help leaders and school communities improve in areas they routinely avoid. In this sense, the book is meant as a “go to” resource for principals, those who train and teach them, and scholars. Although authors recognize the complexity of issues raised in the book, each chapter has a “How to” “What to do” or “Why You Should” ethos in order to give the book a unifying structure and help provide a practical translation of research and theory into practice. Some of the issues addressed include: How to elevate student voice; How to navigate religious conflict in the school and community; How to improve support for LGBTIQ students; Why You Should develop a natural disaster plan; How to work against racism in the school and community; How to practice inclusion in the school; How to make a vision and mission come to life; How to manage relationships with difficult people; What to do when there is racial tension in the community; How to learn the history of your school and community—and why that matters; How to guide and support a leadership team, and; What to do in a school with low trust.
