2013 Annual Ethics Lecture
LONGMEADOW, MA—The recent shootings in Newtown, CT, have sparked discussions and changes in school security and how it impacts a culture of learning where children are also expected to be safe and nurtured. What must we do to keep our schools safe? Who should be included in the discussion about school violence? How can we prevent violence?
These questions and many others will be explored the Annual T. Marc Futter Program for Ethics in Leadership and Integrity in Action Lecture on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 4:00 PM in Mills Theater, Carr Hall. The lecture is free and open to the public.
The panelists represent key areas in the continuing dialogue concerning violence in our schools and include:
- Deanna Suomala, principal at the Washington Elementary School in Springfield, MA
- Charlene Korza, school social worker at the Granby Jr.-Sr. High School in Granby, MA
- The Honorable Judith Phillips, Associate Justice of the Hampden County Juvenile Court in Springfield, MA
The moderator will be Dr. Karen DeAngelis, Chair of the Education Department at Bay Path College.
