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.
