Yesterday, there was a shooting at UNC.
Hear me screaming, North Carolina.
How many times will we allow this to happen to our students at our schools and colleges across our state?
EducationNC is a statewide newspaper. We live everywhere. Every school, every community college, every university is ours. What happens at each of them is personal to all of us.
Please help us figure out what we are going to do to end gun violence at our schools, our colleges, our universities. Help us figure out how to make them the safe spaces they should and need to be, the safe spaces students and educators deserve.
Anita Brown-Graham and the ncIMPACT team are working across the state to promote mental health and reduce suicides. I am so thankful for their belief in collective leadership.
Please let us know what else is happening in your communities on the issues of gun violence, mental health, suicide, and school safety.
