University to open new center that focuses on school safety
The Johns Hopkins University announced Monday that it will create a new interdisciplinary center for school safety and health, the first in the nation in higher education.
The center, announced at a conference of Education Writers Association being held this week in Baltimore, will bring together more than two dozen faculty from disciplines as diverse as education and public health to applied physics.
The center will attempt to take on what has become one of the pressing problems in schools: the safety of students, from kindergarten through undergraduate education. The center will take a holistic approach.
