With our focus so heavily weighted on test scores we do not have time any more to build character in our schools. The day after the shooting, I actually had students laughing about this incident and believing that this was the "coolest" thing that has happened in Coachella since the last crime event. The mentality that violence is "cool" goes unheeded as we push the fact that the students must be ready to pass multiple choice questions on the California State Test this spring. We as teachers do our best in the classroom but we need the time and support from others to help guide our youth in a direction without violence. This shooting was a result of a mentality that has been allowed to breed in the community. Let's educate our children to accept differences and a world that exists outside of their beloved Coachella. This would mean that in schools there would be no tolerance for disrespect and hatred. I witness daily the bullying against authority and peers that is allowed on our school sites. Let's start by bringing real teaching back into the classrooms and stop this nonsense of doing nothing other than teaching our children how to get the best test score. My heart goes out to the families of both of these victims in this shooting.
