If you mean physical safety from intruders or terrorists, then I guess no place is ever totally safe. But for the last few years, most schools (in America anyway) have taken huge safety measures, installing security systems and having guards, etc....
If you mean physical safety AND emotional safety, then the first good step would be to fire the Head of Education Arne Duncan and his minions like Kevin Jennings, and THEN to make the Superintendents and teachers monitor the kids' activities much closer, teach the teachers how to actually guide students.
Years ago, the teachers' motto was for kids to report it if someone bullied them, 'cause they weren't supposed to fight back; if a child returned the "favor" and hit back, they were also in trouble along with the instigator.
Then, somehow, the motto became "Don't Tattle"!
So what are the bullied kids to do? Take up for themselves!
Those mixed messages coming from the authorities in schools took away the reasoning abilities of the students in many situations.
....And I see from your profile you're not in the U.S.?
So, what is it that kids in your schools need protection from?
Many. The mere presence of rickety chairs offer a risky situation. If teachers are not sensitive to this basic need of a child in the classroom, much so with the school administration, school children might experience uncomfortable, and of course not be doing well in their class.
I don't think that schools are risky places. But if you feel so i would like to know about what kind of risk you are talking about?
They must be places where people are cared.
Are there no identifiable physical risks present in your school/s?
School must have Eco-friendly and secure environment by mentally and by atmosphere.

For the 22nd time just this year, somebody opened fire on an America school campus. While most of the others had an AR-15 as the gun of choice, this one was accomplished with a shotgun and revolver. In my mind, that changes the discussion somewhat based on what facts come out.In terms...

Another day, another school shooting. This time it occurred in Santa Fe, Texas with up to 10 people dead.What's obvious is that these students could not defend themselves. Until all high school students are allowed to bring their own guns to school for self-defense purposes, none of them will ever...

The average American teacher works 9 months a year, gets holidays off, receives a base salary, pension, full benefits and a job for life as a result of tenure. What you get, someone with a Masters Degree who on average teaches a class of students ranging from 30 to 50 students who span the...
