McGuire: Combatting teen dating violence as a community
Some of our children are hiding a dangerous secret. Hopefully, new legislation passed this summer will help to change that.
Illinois House Bill 3379 requires school boards to adopt a policy on teen dating violence. The policy must establish procedures for school employees to respond when they become aware of teen dating violence and, under the bill, schools must educate students about dating violence.
The reality is that one in three teens report that they’ve experienced dating violence. At Family Shelter Service, we know that teen dating violence crosses all racial, economic and social lines.
