Middle school violence
Unfortunately, school violence has been increasing recently, especially in St. Petersburg. The article "Police break up brawls at Azalea Middle School, arrest 11 students" is in today's Times. As a part of the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs, the Spotlight Project for our American Graduate initiative, WEDU/WUSF have been working with John Hopkins Middle School in Pinellas County. The students there created this great video piece on violence at their school. The video is featured on the PBS NewsHour. Check out "Fighting Chance?
