It may be hyperbole to say that school shootings have become a way of life in the US…but it seems like they are no longer shocking. They certainly have become more frequent over the past few years. And students have become much more vocal about demanding something be done.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll take you to a session held in Los Angeles during the Education Writers Association’s National Seminar, where four students from around the country spoke out about their experiences with school violence.

We’ll also spend an academic minute comparing these students’ protests with those against the Vietnam War.
