America’s Public Schools – Our Kids at Risk

Yes I said it.  Our kids are at risk in America’s public schools.  On Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Florida, a student shot and killed former classmates. So far 17 people are reported dead, 14 of whom are students. Fourteen families will not see their teenagers alive again.  I can’t imagine the despair, the horror and heartbreak.  The news is just ...
