  • I refuse to frame the issue of youth violence as "student violence" unless we're addressing those elements that are part of the education system. The rest of youth violence is not a "school issue." It's an urban issue, a crime issue, etc.

  • The New York article was for the most part innocuous, a light dabbling in the larger, tragic issue of Derrion Albert's death. The photo, however, is another shock jock approach by Alexander to get our attention. Like we need that.
