School Shootings in The USA

shootings

A recent study of World Health Organization data published in the American Journal of Medicine that found that, among high-income nations, 91 percent of children younger than 15 who were killed by bullets lived in the United States


And the trends are only growing more dire.
On average, two dozen children are shot every day in the United States, and in 2016 more youths were killed by gunfire — 1,637 — than during any previous year this millennium.

How many US school shootings have there been in 2018 so far?
Attack on a Florida high school is the eighth shooting to have resulted in death or injury during the first seven weeks of the year

Some sources have quoted the figure as 18, which is incorrect (as if 8 weren’t enough):

Even one solitary child killed while at school is one too many. Home Schooling, anyone?
