How can we keep our children safe? Schools are still the safest places to be, but since the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy, debate about whether to put more police and guns in schools continues to rage. Even pop culture has grabbed hold - from HBO's Vice to Fox's Glee, guns in school is a hot topic.

Jim Eichner is Managing Director of Programs for Advancement Project, which recently released A Real Fix: The Gun-Free Way to School Safety. Jim will talk to us about how we can keep students safe by, among other things, asking them what they want.

Host, Allison R. Brown, is a civil rights attorney and owner of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC).
