School Violence: Students Speak Out

Yesterday, we visited the offices of the Baltimore Algebra Project. This is a place where students from all over Baltimore are paid to mentor and tutor one another. There is also an advocacy component. Members of the Algebra Project have been detained by police in Annapolis while protesting at the State House and have attempted to place Nancy Grasmick, Maryland Superintendent of Education, under
citizen’s arrest. Marc talked with three students, Stephanie and Ralikh from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Greg from Heritage High, to find out what they think should be done to stem violence in school.
