The room is tucked away in a corner of Riverview East Academy. For students in grades 7 through 12, it's a place where they can talk freely about serious, and deeply personal, issues. It's also a place where school administrators hope students will begin to look out for each other. The room is called Margaret's Place. And some of the teens taking part say it has already worked. The district partnered with Joe Torre's Safe At Home Foundation to set up Margaret's Place at Riverview East. It started in the fall. Torre, the former New York Yankees manager and now a Major League Baseball executive, named the program for his mother, who endured domestic violence in front of Torre and his siblings.
