Dallas-based group to release new Winnie the Pooh book on school violence | #schoolsaftey


A Dallas-based nonprofit group plans to release a book on school violence featuring Winnie the Pooh and a new character, Kindness.

The Uvalde Foundation for Kids, formed after last year’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, said Friday in a news release that it’s releasing a school violence prevention book titled Winnie the Pooh & Kindness: A Thousand Acres School Manual to Prevent Violence. The foundation said the book is meant to counter the negative reactions to a Winnie-the-Pooh book called Stay Safe.

Dallas ISD sent some elementary students home with Stay Safe, which goes over federal protocol on how to react to an active shooter: “run, hide or fight.” The Oak Cliff Advocate initially reported on the book.

The book’s distribution came about a week after eight people were killed and seven were wounded in a shooting at Allen Premium Outlets on May 6.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom commented on the book on Twitter, saying “Winnie the Pooh is now teaching Texas kids about active shooters because the elected officials do not have the courage to keep our kids safe and pass common sense safety gun laws.”

According to the book’s publisher, Praetorian Consulting, Texas police officers and teachers created the Stay Safe curriculum, which is meant to teach children how to remain safe and protect themselves “should a dangerous intrusion take place.”

The Uvalde Foundation said that book focuses more on response than prevention. It says its book instead “starts where education truly begins — the family unit.”

“It is about preventing school violence and addressing, through these beloved childhood characters the many faces of violence, including bullying & the ways parents and students can prevent it,” the foundation said.

DISD’s Winnie-the-Pooh warning is a sad lesson on life today
