The names of the schools are etched in our minds: Columbine High,
Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook Elementary, Marjorie Stoneman Douglas
High, Uvalde Elementary. Gunmen with grudges have struck at all
grade levels and in every corner of the country.
Most shootings take place at businesses, but news stories more
often focus on schools. Deadly shootings are, in fact, tearing up
U.S. schools at a record pace. According to Education
Week, as of October 24 there have been 40 school shootings
this year, with a toll of 34 dead and 88 injured.
