Parents create “Take Back Our Schools” group advocating for school safety
The parents who put on the safety forum for Bennett Middle School have also created a Facebook group called "Take back our schools". The group was created last month and already has more than six thousand followers. The group's creators say they have one common goal in mind which is to make sure their kids and other students stay safe when they are in school.
"The goal of the group is just to bring awareness to our schools and the safety in our schools and to let the board of education know and the officials that we know what's going on in our schools we hear it we know it's not getting better and we want to know what is being done to keep our kids safe," said member of the group Tiffany Knupp.
Knupp also added that the group is always looking for more members and says anyone is welcome to join.
