Jaylen Fryberg shot five of classmates, including some cousins, late last month at Marysville-Pilchuck High in Washington State. Two of the shooting victims died and the Tulalip teen also died of a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound. Members of the tribe and surrounding community continue to mourn the loss of three young people. In this hour, we will take a broad view of school violence. Are you concerned about the potential for violence in your child or grandchild’s school? What can tribes, teachers and community members do to make sure our children are safe? Does your school have a program to address threats of violence?
