Educators Address Student Needs After Recent Violence

Educators in each of the communities affected by recent violence are focusing on students’ needs and how to address emotional issues related to race relations, grief and feelings of safety and well-being.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings shakes Chief of Police David Brown's hand as former President Bush, President Obama, their wives, U.S. Sens. Cornyn and Cruz and others applaud on July 12, 2016.

Educators in the communities affected by recent violence, such as Baton Rouge, Louisiana; St. Paul, Minnesota; and Dallas, are focusing on students’ needs and how to address emotional issues related to race relations, grief and feelings of safety and well-being. Teachers, like one Dallas-area educator, are working on ways to start meaningful dialogues in their classrooms.
