  Expressing the sense of the Congress that the United States Postal 
  Service should issue a commemorative stamp on the subject of school 
                           safety awareness.

Whereas discipline, order, and safety have a direct link to student achievement;
Whereas a secure, positive learning environment is a critical component of a 
        high-quality education;
Whereas safe and orderly schools facilitate effective teaching and learning, 
        while violence or the threat of violence diverts attention and resources 
        from education;
Whereas students cannot learn and educators cannot teach when threatened by 
        physical violence or harassment;
Whereas safe schools require safe communities and safe families;
Whereas young people bring with them to school the problems of their homes and 
        neighborhoods;
Whereas without addressing these underlying problems, complete school safety 
        will remain elusive;
Whereas schools must work more effectively with communities and families to 
        address various forms of school violence such as gang activity, hate-
        motivated violence, sexual harassment, and drug activity; and
Whereas families and communities must acknowledge and support schools' 
        disciplinary efforts: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
            (1) the United States Postal Service should issue a 
        commemorative postage stamp on the subject of school safety 
        awareness; and
            (2) the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee should recommend 
        to the Postmaster General that such a stamp be issued.
                                 &lt;all&gt;
