Philly principals demand more robust response to gun violence near schools

Thursday, October 21, 2021

On Wednesday morning, the principal of Simon Gratz High School Mastery Charter received a text from one of his students, expressing grief that a friend had just died.

I really watched this little boy grow up. I’m so sad. I just lost four friends in a month. Why do we just live to die? It’s like there is no way out of this.
