Very interesting article obviously touching on a rather sensitive topic.
The fact that they are mandating the applicable training is commendable.
The primary concern that is usually voiced on this topic is the fact that the school is trying to have teachers / administrators serve two distinctly different functions within the building.

It will be interesting to see how many of the seven educators graduate the training program.
