    Administrators do little as school descends into war zone. MINNEAPOLIS – Safety concerns arise as violence continues to escalate at Southwest High School. On top of an already failing administration, Southwest High School staff are struggling to maintain peace between students.

Despite attempts to sweep the issue under the rug and downplay the violence, persistent students and parents forced the administration to address the situation. Videos of the fight posted online forced the administration to hold an emergency meeting. The highly anticipated fight between two students who...

    Part II: Missed Opportunities As the investigation continues into the Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, we are learning about missed opportunities to save 17 lives. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, accused of "incompetence and neglect of duty", has been asked to step down. Resource Officer Scot Peterson, whose job it was to provide security and crime prevention services to the school, was accused of “hiding” while innocents who did not have his officer training were gunned down. The truth of the matter is that the tragedy at Parkland was facilitated by the omissions of others. This is how we begin...

    We've come full circle on school discipline: Now students beat the teacher.

"The Harrisburg Education Association says the behavioral issues have prompted the resignations of at least 45 teachers between July and October, and further resignations have since occurred, according to association president Jody Barksdale."

Her answer is a training program called the Faculty/Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response, or FASTER.

    It's handgun control in the extreme. A Michigan kindergartener's make-believe gun - which he created with just his fingers - got him suspended, the Grand Rapids Press reported. Mason Jammer, 6, who attends Ionia's Jefferson Elementary School, pointed his finger-gun at a fellow student Wednesday and got kicked out of school till Friday. School officials said they had given Mason numerous warnings over several months, and his gun play created discomfort for other kids. Mason's mom said the suspension is "too harsh" for a young boy. "He's only six, and he doesn't understand any of this," said Erin Jammer, who...

Although at least one student reportedly questioned...
