Number of Chicago Public Schools students shot rises, as does fear of more to come due to non-stop African American gun violence

The Chicago Public Schools are funneling $60 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to black churches and community groups as "SECURITY" for the CPS students... $60 Million Dollars a Year being WASTED!
The number of Chicago Public Schools students killed in gun violence this past school year dipped slightly from the previous year, but the total number of students who were shot was up sharply, according to figures from Chicago police.

Twenty-four students were fatally shot during the school year that ended June 15, four fewer than in the 2010-11 year. But the overall shooting toll — 319 — was the highest in four years and a nearly 22 percent increase from the previous school year.

The rise in shootings of CPS students compounds concerns over an alarming increase in the city's homicide rate. Through June 17, homicides are up about 38 percent citywide this year compared with the same period in 2011, while shootings are up 12 percent.

The casualty toll includes students shot at all hours of the day, and the numbers from police don't indicate where the shootings occurred. Still, the number of students who were shot presents a vexing problem for CPS officials who have spent millions of dollars trying to stem violence.

The national spotlight on the beating death of Derrion Albert in 2009 brought a heightened focus on combating youth violence under former schools chief Ron Huberman. He added mentoring and advocacy programs for at-risk students, launched intensive "Culture of Calm" programs at 38 troubled high schools, provided community patrols at schools and enlisted faith leaders to open churches after school and during the summer to keep kids off the street.

Now, with the district facing a second year of deficits hovering around $700 million, major funding cuts have been made to initiatives designed to help the most troubled children, according to social service agencies that work with at-risk CPS students.

Just wish they had mandatory range training so they were better shots. Has to be far cheaper than what we're currently spending on patching them up. Total waste of both time and money.

Since everyone is counted as a student whether they are in attendance frequently or not, how about the totals on the shooters and how many are CPS "students"? Just sayin?
