I am grateful to the Senate Education Committee for its support of Senate Bill 200. Research has revealed the devastating effects of trauma on our communities, which is why we want to create policy and curriculum around trauma-informed education initiatives. We have to address the root causes to issues that are impacting our students and trauma informed education is the best way to reach that goal. Special thanks to Sen. Pat Browne (R-Lehigh) for cosponsoring this important legislation that will help people across the commonwealth.
