VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Teachers are taking on violence in schools by taking the issue head-on.

On Tuesday night the Sisters of Providence in Vigo County teamed with local educators to hold a special forum.

Teachers talked about the recent shootings in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 students.

They say it's important to talk about the issues involving school violence. Some say they were able to use the night as a support group.

"We’re tired of worrying, we're tired of being afraid,” said Rockville Jr. Sr. High School teacher, Beth Duley. “We're tired of nothing changing."

The event took place at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.
