The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement is proud to be included in the newly released Federal Commission on School Safety.
The recommendations made in the Federal Commission on School Safety are focused on prevention and the first recommendation is Social Emotional Learning for a safe, positive climate.
“Along with character education programs, fostering
social and emotional learning can help prevent school
violence and improve safety. At a May 17, 2018 information session, Secretary DeVos heard from Scarlett Lewis, who founded the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation after her son was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Lewis applauded First Lady Melania Trump’s “Be Best” initiative for endorsing social and emotional learning, acknowledging the positive
force of social and emotional skills to improve school
safety” (Federal Commission on School Safety).
