Check out this article: “Child abuse education law approved by Senate”!
The state of Illinois is pushing Erin’s Law that would require child abuse awareness education for all students and teachers in primary and secondary education. We wish this would be true for all states.
At Prevent Child Abuse Utah we believe that education is the key to prevention. Talking to children about child abuse and what to do if someone is hurting them is crucial to child abuse prevention. It is essential that teachers and adults who work with children know how to recognize and report abuse as well.
Here in Utah, free age-appropriate education is available for students and teachers! Our agency has been around for over 30 years, and our curriculum is approved by the Utah State Office of Education. Even though it is not state law, many Utah communities, schools, and faculties utilize our programs. PCAU reached about 45,000 people in 2012 with our educational programs, but that number needs to GROW.
We all have a role in child abuse prevention. Safety for our children is a cause we should all support.
