The term "Safe Schools" often refers to a facility that is free of violence, fighting and weapons. But a Safe School should also be a place that is free from discrimination. With Jabari Lyles from GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network). In discussing the issue, Lyles stated, "Bullying these days has become, unfortunately, something deadly. We know that many young people, over the past 10 years or so, have chosen to take their own lives because they feel like there's no way out in school. So just like keeping children save from weapons and drugs, we also have to keep them safe from discrimination, because it can harm them in a very similar way."
