Recommendations from Sandy Hook mom included in federal School Safety Report

The mother of one boy killed at Sandy Hook School was at the White House yesterday as the Trump administration released a school safety report.  Scarlett Lewis created a foundation after her son Jesse was killed, which advocates for social and emotional learning. 

Family members who lost children on 12-14 and at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida were on hand for the meeting. 

The 180-page report from the Federal Commission on School Safety, headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, included information from the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement.  The no-cost enrichment program helps students become connected, resilient and empowered by incorporating emotional mental health awareness into the school curriculum.  Lewis called the meeting a great first step, but that the next step of implementation is equally important. 

Other recommendations included banning so-called bumpstock devices and arming teachers.
