School Safety

NPR's Mary Ann Akers reports from Chicago on the city school board's new safety policy. It requires that students released from jail or juvenile detention, be evaluated to determine whether they should be allowed to return to their regular school or be sent to an alternative school. The school board says the policy intends to protect other students from violence. Akers visits the "Second Chance" alternative school in South Chicago.
