"I think that education is essential for every human being. It’s a powerful tool to raise consciousness, on an individual level and collectively as a whole. I think that only through education can we have critical individuals capable of reflecting upon their world and making an impact."
Tatiana Huezo, film director
The committee dedicated to keeping students in school at the Ministry of Education of the municipality of Palmira, Colombia has developed strategic tools in order to achieve safe schools. These strategies include building a safe school environment by working with families, inclusive education policies that help different actors within the school community peacefully coexist, due process to ensure that norms are respected, school committees convened to develop strategies and identify problems, and additional academic support for at-risk students.Watch video
