Gun Violence in the USA needs to address cause for needing the guns FIRST

Since the start of the school year I have challenged my students to define the serious and difficult problems that impact their lives on a daily basis in their community. I have impressed upon them that knowing the problem without some suggestion of corrective action is not only a need but a life challenge/skill they will practice many, many times in their adult life.

The four difficulties below highlight student observations of the cause but also corrective actions for what they see as community problems.

  1. Living wage jobs for young adults that cannot afford college/university/trade/technical school or do not wish to attend
  2. Local gun and non gun violence
  3. Living wage jobs for their parents that by in large have graduated from high school
  4. Job specific training for real jobs that does not require a vast and expensive education that many cannot afford or accomplish
