After reading a news story about a fight at a local high school that involved gang members it started me to think about something.
Should teenagers who are known by police and school officials to be members of a gang be allowed to attend public schools?
Should gang membership by its very nature of violence and crime activity be enough to expel students from a public school?
IMO gang members cause a real physical danger to the rest of the student population. Get them out of our public schools.
I was also troubled by the fact the school seemed to be downplaying the seriousness of gang members violence and having weapons at the school.
Do kids have to die before the school worries about student safety more then getting bad press?
