In reading an article about the planned removal of trailers at schools, or “learning cottages,” I read some pretty informing reasons as to why they’re proving to be an issue to students and teachers. 

Before reading the rest of the article and just reading the title, “Plan to eliminate classroom trailers deserves support and improvement,” I couldn’t understand why we would want to get rid of something that helps us keep more kids in school until I read logical reasons, an example being extreme weather. 

Though, one of the reasons I came across was interesting to me. It read: “It’s a goal that has taken on a greater sense of urgency as schools everywhere take steps to improve security in response to school shootings.” While I understand the viewpoint of this position, I can’t help but think that this is more of a public issue of gun control than a private trouble that schools must deal with. 

In an article I read about mass shootings in America, I read “Data from the Gun Violence Archive reveals there is a mass shooting…nine out of every 10 days on average” (The Guardian).

It seems to me like the more effective solution to such a reoccurring issue would be taking a more critical eye at gun control laws as opposed to getting rid of school trailers in protection from gun violence.

A mass shooting 9 out of every 10 days???? BS Why don't you try getting your info from a more reliable source. Do you understand how rare school shootings actually are? Classrooms are much more important than more gun control.


Isaiah, the problem with separating gun control laws from protecting school trailers from gun violence is PWCS doesn't have any power to change gun control laws, since that is at the Federal and State levels, not the local level. The only thing that we can do are make adjustments at the local level, which are to build onto current schools, build new ones, and re-draw boundaries (which we are currently doing).
