Should Students Stay Away From School?
There was another school shooting in the U.S. on Friday.
This time in Santa Fe, Texas.
Santa Fe High School had a shooting plan and armed police officers. Ten people died.
Dozens of students have been shot and killed this year alone. What was once an unthinkable strategy has become common enough that some are wondering whether to send their kids to school at all unless something changes.
This is brilliant, and tragically necessary.
What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?
My family is all in if we can do this at scale.
Parents, will you please join us? https://t.co/Yo4wsFuJI5
