More than evil: The Unaddressed Causes of Gun Violence In American Schools

Bennett Forkner
In 2005, Jeffrey Weise, a student at Red Lake High School in Minnesota, killed 10 people at his high school. In 2007, Sueng-Hui Cho, a senior at Virginia Tech, murdered 33 people in two separate shootings at his university. In 2012, Adam Lanza left his home after killing his mother to murder 28 students and faculty at Sandy Hook Elementary School (Rapp). Over the past few decades, gun violence in America has become more and more at the forefront of American politics and discourse because of the frequency and moral closeness of the problem. Many politicians have argued in past years that the problem of gun violence can be solved by removing all firearms from the hands of private citizens. In contrast, this paper argues that such violence can only be prevented with the proper treatment of mental illness in schools. This thesis will be demonstrated primarily by evaluating the causes of gun violence.

Trauma at School: The Impacts of Shootings on Students' Human Capital and Economic Outcomes

Marika Cabral, Bokyung Kim, Maya Rossin-Slater, Molly Schnell & Hannes Schwandt
A growing number of American children are exposed to gun violence at their schools, but little is known about the impacts of this exposure on their human capital attainment and economic well-being. This paper studies the causal effects of exposure to shootings at schools on children’s educational and economic outcomes, using individual-level longitudinal administrative data from Texas. We analyze the universe of shootings at Texas public schools that occurred between 1995 and 2016, and match schools that experienced shootings with observationally similar control schools in other districts. We use difference-in-differences models that leverage within-individual and across-cohort variation in shooting exposure within matched school groups to estimate the short- and long-run impacts of shootings on students attending these schools at the time of the shooting. We find that shooting-exposed students have an increased absence rate and are more likely to be chronically absent and repeat a grade in the two years following the event. We also find adverse long-term impacts on the likelihood of high school graduation, college enrollment and graduation, as well as employment and earnings at ages 24-26. Heterogeneity analyses by student and school characteristics indicate that the detrimental impacts of shootings are universal, with most sub-groups being affected.

Exploring School Violence and Safety Concerns

Emilee Green
Although school violence is not a new phenomenon, school safety continues to be a leading public health concern, particularly following high-profile school shootings. In response to these events, many schools have quickly implemented strategies to enhance safety, but research indicates certain responses may actually worsen student well-being. This literature review is the first in a two-part series providing an overview of factors that can affect school safety, including school climate, bullying, and school violence.
