Bullying, violence, and shootings have focused public attention on safety and security in schools. As students have returned to in-person learning following the COVID-19 pandemic, school staff are now reporting dramatic spikes in physical assaults and mental health issues.

The Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government hosted 6 one-hour sessions with the nation’s leading policymakers, scholars, and experts on school safety. The purpose of this virtual series is to explore current issues in school security and to consider research-informed strategies for addressing current challenges.
