No Child Left Behind? Homicide Rates Soar
It was Asian on Asian crime for those of you curious about that kind of thing - a group of kids tried to rob her and her friends. Inko was killed. I told my daughter if she was ever in that situation, just give them her money, her cell phone, whatever they wanted and run like hell. While we obsess about kids understanding Algebra, they are getting killed in record numbers. Homicide is the number one cause of death of youth in our county, Alameda County. We have left kids behind, no matter how hard we try to get it right.
Our kids are fat, depressed, suicidal and getting killed.
