(b) Statement of purpose
It is the purpose of this subchapter to help local school systems achieve Goal Six  [1] of the National Education Goals, which provides that by the year 2000, every school in America will be free of drugs and violence and will offer a disciplined environment conducive to learning, by ensuring that all schools are safe and free of violence.
