The superintendent for the district that includes the Florida high school where 17 people were shot last week said arming teachers is not the solution to school shootings, after President Donald Trump suggested that schools give staff firearms to improve safety.
The shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland has galvanized students themselves -- not just locally but elsewhere -- to become more politically vocal in pushing lawmakers to take action to limit the frequency of such shootings. If such school shootings leave a lasting scar on a community, how many people right now actually go to school in areas where a shooting took place?
Moreover, how many people live in such communities?
