Yesterday, Monday, April 2, 2012, Oikos University in Oakland saw a man with the last name of Goh kill 7 students. The man had been working on his nursing degree.
University shootings have gradually become mundane events in America. Could it be because students are being indoctrinated as Santorum suggests? I hope not, considering it was a Christian school.

This event prompted me to do research on just how often violent acts actually happen at schools. The numbers, although still discouraging, have been declining for years. My question is, why?
The numbers can be found here: http://youthviolence.edschool.virginia.edu/violence-in-schools/national-statistics.html.
I strongly suggest checking them out. Please leave any comments or answers to why this is happening!
