i agree on , this whole world need to address social issues. we are not unique , these kinds of things happen all over the world. The school can only do what they can with the time allotted. The cop also runs a couple after school clubs and there is an ongoing intervention program and a mediator program . the school tries , but it s a society problem. sadly human life is cheap . it is a huge complicated issue. and the answer is not so easy as to say do this and all will be well. we will have to take many many little steps that all tie in. guns / drugs / education / jobs / families . there are so many things that contribute.
