  Part One: Being Prepared — Before a Crisis
  Preventing Violent Behavior
As a core value, all educators want students to learn and be successful academically, behaviorally and socially in the school setting. Educators know that students learn more when they feel safe and educators want to work in a safe environment. Developed by the National Education Association (NEA) and the NEA Health Information Network (NEA HIN) in consultation with the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and the American Psychological Association (APA), this resource, focuses on taking a proactive prevention approach to making your working & learning environment safe and violence free for students and educators
