The Ferraro Plan is designed to prevent school shootings. Using a three-step system, the Ferraro Plan can help schools put safeguards in place to stop the first school shooting from ever happening. Similarly, the Ferraro Plan offers options for making sure that teachers, administrators, and students all know what to do to protect themselves. With the Ferraro Plan, schools will know exactly what to do when faced with a school shooter.
The school shooting statistics are grim. Hundreds of children are dying every year at the hands of school shooters. However, these terrible occurrences are preventable. If schools and community organizations put safeguards in place, they will be able to keep their students safe and stop the violence before it happens. We can’t let another day go by where our children are at risk of dying because of a school shooting. It’s time to stop the violence. It’s time to take action. It’s time to put a plan in place.
