In the Wake of Mass Shootings, Parents Reconsider Mass Schooling

Parents who remove their children from the confines of the conventional classroom are not running away from reality. They are running towards it.

In the wake of recent tragic school shootings, anxious parents are contemplating homeschooling to protect their children. After February’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the Miami Herald reported that more parents were considering the homeschooling option.

In the aftermath of yet another mass shooting in the United States, the internet and broadcast news alike are inundated with commentary about why this keeps happening in America. Some blame guns, others blame mental health, and still others confidently blame false flag events and crisis actors. But one commonality among numerous mass killings in

Mass Shootings Are a Symptom of a Problem That Gun Control Won’t Solve

School shootings are a symptom of a very large, very dangerous problem. They are not simply a symptom of a need for gun control, or a symptom of a lack of accessible mental health services, or a symptom of an over-medicated, desensitized youth population.

There is a sickness eating at the body and soul of my home country, and it is on full view for the world to see. When the news broke on Valentine’s Day that 17 people—mostly young students—had lost their lives in Parkland, Florida, one could be forgiven for being numb.

Asking such a question is difficult, first because of concerns of profiling, discrimination, etc., and second, because it’s hard to answer. It’s important to answer because it’s important for us to know whether military training is

The Deafening Public Silence Following The Shooting Of 3 Muslim American Men

Many Muslim and black Americans who gathered at a vigil for the three men in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday noted that the violence faced by people at the intersection of anti-blackness and Islamophobia in the United States is often ignored by both the media and the general public.

Think Progress--The murder of three young men in Fort Wayne, Indiana last week has left many Muslim Americans reeling — and it has also once again brought to the forefront the little attention given to violence against black bodies in the United States. Many Muslim and black Americans who gathered at a vigil for the three men in Washington, D.C.
