Please create safe spaces for students in Georgia Public Schools. A safe space is a designated room free from negativity and prejudice. A positive room for victims of bullying and cyber bullying. A room for students in need of emotional support, suicide prevention and a haven for LGBTQ youth. The safe space would be equipped with a teacher trained in behavioral health.
I created this petition to help all students succeed, prevent absenteeism, improve the graduation rate and ultimately save lives of students. Helping students who are victims of bullying or needing emotional support is very important to me. I have known too many friends needing guidance at school and it negatively impacted them and others around them. Some students may not feel comfortable speaking with their parents, teachers, or school counselors about bullying and other things stopping them from doing their best in school.
There are anti-bullying campaign's but not a specific area for students to go and still learn. A separate safe space room complete with a professional trained in helping children cope with these issues is needed. This space would give students a place to speak with someone anonymously. In the safe space classroom, students would still do their work, however they would be free from distractions, learn coping skills, and speak about whatever issues they may have. Students can come to the safe space during a certain class, for a day or several days. More students will succeed with suicide prevention help and mental and emotional help. This will make students better, improve success in school and make society better. A safe space classroom is needed for all schools. Justin Hill of the GA Dept of education, Representative David Scott, Clayton County Schools Superintendent Dr. Morcease Beasley and Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Meria Carstarphen please help the students of Georgia with separate space rooms.
