In the year since the Sandy Hook shooting, controversy over gun laws and the nation’s mental health system has continued to be a national debate.
On December 7th, WHYY looks to continue the community dialogue around the question, “How do we make our schools safe again?” in an event held at the University of Delaware’s Wilmington Campus. Participants will be encouraged to add their voice and their insights to the conversation and discuss the issue with fellow parents, educators and taxpayers.
A panel of experts will help to start the discussion, with each will offering differing visions for what should be done about school safety.The speakers include Raymond Lorion, Dean of the College of Education at Towson University and an expert on community psychology and adolescent development, Dr. Anthony Semone, a forensic and police psychologist, and Lt. Frank Borelli, the editorial director for the Cgynus Law Enforcement Media.
In addition, the discussion will be used to help draft a set of questions to drive WHYY’s and NewsWorks.org’s coverage of school safety and related issues in the coming year.
When: Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
