Editor's Note
Educating About Violence Prevention

I’d honestly never thought much about a role for educators to play in curtailing the tragic number of injuries and deaths that befall school-age youngsters because of the easy access of firearms in their homes. That changed when I received a manuscript submission last May on this topic from Ken Mitchell, a longtime AASA member who serves as editor of AASA’s quarterly electronic publication, the Journal of Scholarship and Practice. He called his submission a “Dear Colleague” letter.

Mitchell brings a load of credibility to this issue from his four decades in public education, as he references in his My View commentary, “Unsecured Guns and the School-Home Partnership." Sadly, he’s no outside observer to gun violence in schools and beyond. In one episode, during his time as superintendent of a suburban school district in New York, he had to disarm a parent with mental illness who confronted him inside his school district office.

There’s a lot of common sense in his message.
