This year middle school students at the Lighthouse Charter School in Oakland, California will spend three months learning about gun violence in the United States. "Dedicated to serving a student population that has been historically underserved by the traditional school system" the Lighthouse School is lauded in the Bay Area for its innovative approach to education.
Through interdisciplinary curriculum, students at Lighthouse will learn about the history of gun rights, study the mathematical statistics of gun violence, and learn about the psychological and sociological underpinnings of gun violence. Students will also have the opportunity to make Vision Quilt panels.
