Jason Fruth, Ph.D., assistant professor in Wright State’s Department of Education, spoke to community leaders and citizens on the afternoon of Thursday, March 20. The purpose of his visit was to help get the ball rolling on the Community PAX program.

An Associated Press analysis finds that there have been at least 11 school shootings this academic year alone, in addition to other cases of gun violence, in school parking lots and elsewhere on campus, when classes were not in session. Experts say the rate of school shootings is statistically unchanged since the mid- to late-1990s, yet still remains troubling.
Mental health services provided by school counselors, psychologists and social workers are a key line of defense against school violence, experts say.
