    Threshold for Dangerous Schools Under New Law Is Too High, Critics Say

    Yeah- it’s been a rough start to the school year.

    Just this month, a 15-year-old in Cold Spring, Minn., killed a fellow student and wounded another; SWAT officers shot and wounded a student wielding a pistol in a high school in Spokane, Wash.; three students were stabbed in a high school parking lot brawl in Oakdale, Calif.; a teenage intruder stabbed a 13-year-old student at a high school in Annapolis, Md.; and a 16-year-old boy died after a fight at a Tucson school.

    At least 14 students have been shot at bus stops and just outside schools since the fall term began, 5 of them fatally.

    Don’t worry, parents. Just click your heels together and chant Marsha Smith’s refrain, “Schools are the safest place for students to be.”
