Colorado Shooting Highlights Challenges of Keeping Schools Safe

The latest shooting inside an American school killed 18-year-old senior Kendrick Castillo and wounded eight other students. The accused shooters—both students at the K-12 STEM School Highlands Ranch in suburban Denver—had not been flagged as possible threats, according to police. Education Week reporter Evie Blad talks with NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff about the major challenges schools face in protecting—and preparing—students from gun violence, even though most children will never encounter a shooter in their school.
