this campaign, Georgian Prosecutor Murtaz Zodelava and the Minister of
Education and Science Dimitri Shashkini visited Tbilisi #51 public school and

participants focused on the following issues: providing a safe school environment,
the coordinating efforts of the law enforcement bodies and educational
institutions with regard to providing a safe environment at schools, the role
of a family and society in raising awareness on importance of forming law abiding
