.Are Delaware Valley schools safe enough? What’s being done to make them safer?
KYW’s Mike DeNardo presents this four-part KYW Regional Affairs Council special report…
Until this year, the Samuel Fels High School in Northeast Philadelphia was listed as a “persistently dangerous” school, as defined by the state. But the climate is changing there.
If kids don’t feel safe, they’re not going to learn. But now the victims of assaults in Philadelphia schools have someone going to bat for them.
There is a new atmosphere at one Philadelphia high school where, students say, violence used to be commonplace.
In this report, KYW’s Mike DeNardo looks at how Philadelphia’s new schools superintendent plans to tackle school violence.
