Bill Cosby spoke to Temple students about the effect of violence in classrooms. Temple University/Philadelphia --
Entertainer and educator Bill Cosby hosted a forum on school violence Wednesday. He spoke to education students at Temple University's Center City campus.

He and professors talked about how violence affects behavior and emotions in children and their teachers. Cosby says programs to help stop violence in the classroom are needed to keep teachers safe.

"Programs are being pushed out because people don't care about the children," said Cosby. "If they don't care about the children, then they don't care about the teachers."

Cosby stressed that teachers need more support and he cited studies showing frustrated teachers often leave the profession after just five years.
