Gov. Pat Quinn, school administrators and mental health and public safety experts said Tuesday that they left a school safety summit with pages of ideas, including improving resources for mental health and encouraging students to speak up if they hear about potential threats. "We want to educate all of those who come through the school building, including the students, that being silent about potential violence is a very dangerous thing," Quinn said at a news conference after the summit.
