CHARDON -- A math teacher at Chardon High School reflects on the year since a shooting in the cafeteria left three dead and three wounded.
Tammy Segulin writes about how the shooting led to questions about how to make school safer without making schools feel like prisons.
Segulin writes : "A range of issues must be addressed in order to ensure that schools are safe places to learn. We need expanded programs and training for students and educators, to help them spot potential mental health needs, bullying or high-risk behaviors. We need increased access to mental health services, and upgraded, safe school facilities. And we need meaningful legislative action to help decrease gun violence."
