Whereas, The National PTA in its purposes, programs, and PTA Handbook p romotes safety for children and youth; and

Whereas, The hazards encountered by children in their schools, homes, and communities vary widely in different localities and cannot be specifically enumerated or predicted at the national level; and

Whereas, State laws, local ordinances, and administrative regulation s by necessity carry different wording, intent, and impact on hazardous conditions; and

Whereas, Detailed resolutions dealing with hazards faced by children in particular locations are inappropriate for national consideration and action; therefore be it

Resolved, That the National PTA urge its state branches, councils, and local units to work with other community groups and agencies to maintain a continuing surveillance of safety matters in their areas; and be it further

Resolved, That state laws and local ordinances be monitored to assure adequate safety regulations for the protection of children and youth; and be it further

Resolved, That the National PTA support the inclusion of safety education in the curriculum at all levels of public schools
