As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
In response to the school shooting that claimed the lives of 17 students in Parkland, Florida, schools across the Washington region are responding with heightened security and safety precautions. The threats are no longer hypothetical. Just last week, a Montgomery County student was arrested for bringing a loaded gun to his high school. From a mental health standpoint, how are local students processing school shootings? We discuss with counselors and educators working to create a safe learning environment.
WAMU Education coverage is supported in part by American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen, a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
