There is a thread on gun control. This thread is about changing our academic philosophy to help the needs of an alarming violent youth
You are really taking this in an unnecessary direction.
My suggestion was to use school as the forefront to teach the next generation of adults to be better citizens.
Currently there are little to no program available for kids in schools because schools are 99% focused on raising test scores. There is no time for it.
There are deeply disturbed kids in public schools today who's issues are being ignored.
In other diagnosed cases, students are being mainstreamed when they cant handle it
In a matter of years these students will be of adult age.
It is disturbing that the trend of mass shooters in this country are young people just out of the school system.
A school system that seemed to turn its back on children's issues
