Statement on School Shooting in Broward County, Florida

Dallas, Texas – February 15, 2018

Stephanie Hirsh, executive director of Learning Forward, issued the following statement:


“We are horrified about the school shooting in Broward County Public Schools yesterday. Schools should be havens for joy, learning, and community.


“Gun violence has no place in our schools or communities. We call on policymakers to have the difficult conversations they haven’t been willing to have so far. Take responsibility for the safety of our educators and students. There is no higher priority than doing what is right for America’s children.”
