[Congressional Bills 108th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [H. Con. Res. 28 Introduced in House (IH)] 108th CONGRESS 1st Session H. CON. RES. 28 Expressing the sense of the Congress that the United States Postal Service should issue a commemorative stamp on the subject of school safety awareness. _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES February 4, 2003 Mrs. Jones of Ohio (for herself, Mr. Langevin, Ms. Carson of Indiana, Mr. Fattah, Mr. Ryan of Ohio, and Mr. Frost) submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Government Reform _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the Congress that the United States Postal Service should issue a commemorative stamp on the subject of school safety awareness. Whereas discipline, order, and safety have a direct link to student achievement; Whereas a secure, positive learning environment is a critical component of a high-quality education; Whereas safe and orderly schools facilitate effective teaching and learning, while violence or the threat of violence diverts attention and resources from education; Whereas students cannot learn and educators cannot teach when threatened by physical violence or harassment; Whereas safe schools require safe communities and safe families; Whereas young people bring with them to school the problems of their homes and neighborhoods; Whereas without addressing these underlying problems, complete school safety will remain elusive; Whereas schools must work more effectively with communities and families to address various forms of school violence such as gang activity, hate- motivated violence, sexual harassment, and drug activity; and Whereas families and communities must acknowledge and support schools' disciplinary efforts: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of the Congress that-- (1) the United States Postal Service should issue a commemorative postage stamp on the subject of school safety awareness; and (2) the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee should recommend to the Postmaster General that such a stamp be issued. <all>
