"That the people accused us of
corruption, and in our failure to
pass a real reform bill, we con
firmed their worst fear”
McCain, who made cam
paign finance legislation the cen
terpiece of his run for the White
House last year, echoed John F.
Kennedy's inaugural address in
his own remarks.
"Most Americans believe that
we would let this nation pay any
price, bear any burden for the
sake of securing our own ambi
tions, no matter how injurious the
effect might be to the national
interest,” he said.
McConnell and Hagel out
lined the case against the restric
tions in the legislation, stressing
"Democracy is messy. Our
system is imperfect But our gov
ernment works because of the
rights of all people to participate
in this democracy,” said HageL
After years of occasionally
fierce battles, all sides were at
pains to say they hoped for a
"We must guard against
impugning each other's motives
here,” said HageL "No senator has

I Bill aims to curb violence in schools
VHHiMg from page 1
Nelson said Omaha schools
encourage students to tdl facul
ty or staff members if another
student said anything that
would raise the red flags of dan
ger, which was what happened
at Burke High School.
Before violent acts were
somewhat commonplace on 24
hour news networks, students
would refuse to tattle on other
students who made violent
threats, Nelson said, but with
more frequent violence, stu
dents are (hanging heir ways v
“Kids are afraid of something
like this happening, and they are
being more cooperative about
letting faculty know,” Nelson
At Lincoln East High School
on Wednesday - the same day as
the Burke incident - a student
received a five-day suspension
for writing a story about bomb
ing the school and injuring staff
and students, The Associated
Later, an investigation found
the girl’s story was not a safety
threat The student was still sus
Reece Peterson, UNL associ
ate professor of special educa
tion and communication disor
ders, worked with the Lincoln
Police Department and the
Lincoln Public Schools five years
ago in putting together a variety
of safety programs in area
Now Peterson puts on work
shops with the Lincoln police
and city schools to train teachers
and administrators about how
to deal with school violence.
“Schools develop their own
safety and security plan because
the circumstances are different
in each school,” Peterson said.
Nebraska is a local control
state, which leaves decision
making about each school up to
individual school districts,
according to the State
Mirtment of Education.
Peterson identified a num
of methods schools use to
Some of methods schools
can adopt include prevention
programs that teach student
conflict resolution skills and a
“Character Counts” program
that identifies six important
traits people should have.
Other ways Nebraska
schools deal with violence
include early intervention pro
grams that identify and help stu
dents who have difficulty deal
ing with problems through men
toring programs and academic
For students with serious
behavior problems, schools can
use alternative behavior pro
grams and individual behavior
These methods may help
children who are verbally or
physically aggressive, who defy
authority or children who are
depressed or isolated, Peterson
For a school in Nebraska to
be accredited, it has to follow a
school safety plan.
Lincoln Public Schools has
also adopted an anti-bullying
program, which teaches chil
dren to be alert of bullies and
works with children who do the
“I’m an advocate for schools
having some of these programs,
but they shouldn't have to follow
all of them,” Peterson said.
Peterson said the zero- toler
ance policy, a traditional way
schools have dealt with violence,
was sometimes taken to
extremes and wasn’t the best
He said a reformed sense of
discipline should be taken up by
Nebraska schools instead.
“Discipline needs to go for
ward and be more effective at
changing students,” he said. "It
doesn’t make sense to punish
children when they didn't intend
f For example, Peterson said,
suspending or expelling a stu
dent for carrying a fingernail
clipper with a knife on it doesn't
help prevent student violence.
