Everyone talks about putting more police in schools, but how about more social workers? Wouldn't we rather prevent incidents than police them? I am a social work student at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and my internship is in a Baltimore city high school. As an experiment, we asked a group of students if they knew someone who died recently. Half the class raised their hand, and only one said it was their 90-year-old grandma. The rest of the students discussed friends, family members or acquaintances who were killed by gun violence.
