  • USA Today (8/15) For millions of American kids, going back to school is an exciting time of reconnecting with friends, learning about new ideas and engaging fresh possibilities. But for too many of them, particularly racial minorities living in low-income neighborhoods, the excitement of learning is curbed by sweltering classrooms with little or no air conditioning.
  • Wisconsin State Journal (8/15, Hamer) New technology from a Baraboo-based startup could alert people of an active shooter in their building and the location of the gunshots, immediately after the first shot is fired. Similar to a fire alarm, the security system uses sensors to detect the sound of a gunshot, then sends an alert throughout a building.
  • The AP (8/15, Wildermuth) Members of the commission investigating last year’s Florida high school massacre ripped into the district’s superintendent Thursday, saying he’s not doing enough to assure campus security, particularly at charter schools. Members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission told Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie it’s unacceptable that up to 29 charter schools recently reported they have no long-term plan for having an armed guard on campus as required by law.
  • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (8/15) As her family tells it, Imani Bell ran a mile in the withering heat on Tuesday, then complained to her basketball coach that she didn’t feel well. They said the 16-year-old was told to run up some steps anyway, just before she collapsed and died.
