This category addresses school safety for parents, students, educators, law enforcement and legislators. School safety is divided into sub-categories because of the diverse nature of the subject and the heighten concern in the 1990's: programs, publications, organizations, conferences, training opportunities and environmental concerns of maintaining a safe school. While some links relate to school violence, specific school violence links can be found at Society: Issues: Violence: School. School safety includes science safety as well. For lack of a better home for the category, there is a subcategory of school safety which addresses these issues.
