Guns & Roses – Mass Shooting Won’t Add to US Campus Attraction

Days after the May 24 Texas elementary school massacre, in which a teenager killed 19 children, a 10-year-old boy was arrested at a Florida school for threatening a mass shooting. The boy shared messages and photos of four assault rifles allegedly used by the Texas killer, telling a friend to “get ready for a water day” – alluding to a school-sponsored event in which students use water. participate in activities. Under pressure from the public inquiry and his failed response to the Texas shootings, officers in Florida swiftly stepped in, arrested him and pulled him out in handcuffs.

At no point, there would have been national outcry over the boy’s treatment of the baby face. Not now. “While I understand that the boy is 10 years old, his brain is not fully developed, he is a teenager, I must tell you: when a 10-year-old child presses the trigger, the result is the same regardless of age. ,” the local sheriff explained.

America is in a crisis – a gun control crisis, of course, but also an education crisis. Young America is losing its way. Broken families, economic inequalities, social tensions, and exposure to violence add to an already permissive gun-ho culture in many parts of the country. There have been other counterfeit threats after the recent massacres. Given what has happened, the officers, in assault for the use of excessive force in other situations—particularly in the reckless execution of young black men—could not take it easy. This is a terrible dilemma.

The major culprit is America’s addiction to guns. Its victims are not only innocent children, but also the reputation of the United States as a source of good education.

America’s greatest strength, most powerful weapon, is not its nuclear arsenal or military technology, but its education system, especially at the college and university level. Millions of people from all over the world come to America in search of good education. Not only students of higher education, of whom one million enroll in American universities every year, but also the children of working professionals and immigrants whose first job after settling in America, if they were parents, would be to find a good school. Looking for the district. for their children.

This is especially true for Asian and South Asian families. An Indian or Pakistani family will go to extraordinary lengths – including paying high rent or mortgages, facing long journeys, and even relocating cities – just to get their children into the best schools. which are usually run by the school boards that are part of it. local government. In fact, you know that an immigrant has actually arrived and integrated into society when parents run for school board elections. School boards have budgets of billions of dollars: the New York City School District, the largest of the nation’s nearly 1,000 school districts, for example has a budget of $38 billion, spending more than $25,000 per student.

But it all comes to naught when students are unable or unwilling to take advantage of the facilities that few countries in the world are able to provide. Asian immigrants are particularly adept at taking advantage of this. In some of the more exclusive school districts of Maryland, Virginia, California, Texas and Washington, excellence is driven by Asian students – Indian, Pakistani, Chinese, Korean. They seem to place more emphasis on education. And generally, many of them come from families with at least one parent living in the home or from a large family with grandparents.

Not that that stops it from breaking down occasionally. One of the bloodiest massacres in college history was perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho, a South Korean student who killed 32 people at VirginiaTech in 2007. In 2016, Manik Sarkar, an Indian PhD student, shot dead his professor. wife. Common to both events: easy availability of weapons.

There are approximately 100 million students in the United States, approximately three out of every three in its population of 330 million. Some 80 million are enrolled in schools from classes one to twelve. Another 20 million are in colleges and universities. According to US News & World Report and the Wharton Business School, the United States is the world’s No. 1 ranked country in terms of education, based on its well-developed public education system.

But there are other studies that use different metrics and methodologies and arrive at a different ranking. For example, the annual study by Global Citizens for Human Rights measures ten levels of education ranging from early childhood enrollment rates to adult literacy to place Denmark at the top, followed by Finland, Japan, Canada, Sweden, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Singapore and South Korea. The UAE is ranked 27th ahead of India, South Africa, Brazil and Pakistan.

Anyway, the flurry of nativeism and travel ban due to various restrictions, restrictions and covid ban was robbing the allure of American education system. Pointing a gun in a school or college campus will not do anything.
