Posted on 04/15/2018 10:53:30 AM PDT by Rusty0604
Broward County, Fla., school officials portray as a great success their Obama administration-inspired program offering counseling to students who break the law, instead of having them arrested or expelled. They insist that it played no role in Februarys school massacre by Nikolas Cruz. They also claim that in fact juvenile recidivism rates are down and school safety is up, thanks to the program.
The evidence tells a far different story.
Broward County juvenile justice division records, federal studies of Broward school district safety and the district's own internal reporting show that years of intensive" counseling didnt just fail to reform repeat offender Cruz, who allegedly went on to shoot and kill 17 people at his high school. Records show such policies have failed to curtail other campus violence and its effects now on the rise in district schools including fighting, weapons use, bullying and related suicides.
Meanwhile, murders, armed robberies and other violent felonies committed by children outside of schools have hit record levels, and some see a connection with whats happening on school grounds. Since the relaxing of discipline, Broward youths have not only brazenly punched out their teachers, but terrorized Broward neighborhoods with drive-by shootings, gang rapes, home invasions and carjackings.
Broward County now has the highest percentage of the most serious, violent [and] chronic juvenile offenders in Florida, according to the countys chief juvenile probation officer.

If you don't report problems, they don't exist. Head in the sand....
Pillar or post. There is no balance.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
The Promise Program rewards violent and/or antisocial behavior. Ending it is one form of "common sense" gun reform we should get behind.
Well, punk, some day you’re going to meet that God you hate so much, face to face.
How much of a man are you going to be then?
NYC was about chasing miscreants to other quarters. The old fashioned reform schools didn’t need to even be very harsh if they were tightly supervised. But that costs money.
I live part time in Broward county.....those outside truly cannot comprehend just how vile the majority can be.
“those outside truly cannot comprehend just how vile the majority can be.”
I’ve never been there——in what way are they vile?
Laws don't even stop bad behavior.
The only thing that stops it is enforcement, aka consequences.
I’m curious how much credible Christianity he has even seen.
Umm, we’d all go to hell then.
Try again. Something happened at a cross 2000 years ago.
Likely, not much.
I’d say that’s probably true for most of the God haters. They just feed on the propaganda they’ve been fed.
Becoming a new creature in Christ will work for sure.
But outside of that, there are no other options other than enforcement.
Another seething irrational perspective on this shooting too from “The Forward”. Surprise they fail to blame authorities.
How do you know?
God punishes lazy churches with heathens.
So why the lazy churches?
Wow, is he a CNN darling too?
This is why I’m pushing this. Those policies should have been brought out when the dem media began with the attack on guns and the NRA
CONSERVATIVE TALKIES RESPONDING TO THE MEDIA’S WAR ON THE NRA, GUNS, AND THE 2ND AMENDMENT ONLY AIDS THEM IN CONCEALING THE POLICY FAILURES AS A NATIONAL ISSUE WHICH PERMITTED PARKLAND TO OCCUR
WAS PARKLAND AN IDYLLIC SCHOLASTIC SETTING OR A NIGHTMARE
Only an investigation will either dispel or prove that with those policies enforced. Students had all kinds of disciplinary problems (drugs, thefts fights etc) when attending classses there. Were scholastic standards lowered to fit fed DOJ grants ?
WHERE WAS THE DEMAND FOR FEDERAL AND STATE INVESTIGATIONS ????
It was not guns or the NRA Its policies which had cops standing outside while killing was going on or some nut getting a gun the FBI knew he wasnt suppose to... Plus a whole raft of other stuff
WAS THE DEMAND FOR STATE AND FED INVESTIGATION ON THE POLICIES WHICH CAUSED THIS NOT CONSIDERED BY FLORIDA POLS BECAUSE THE RESULT WOULD BE LAW SUITS AGAINST THE STATE ???
He does look like Frozone from The Incredibles.
