Stop School Attacks – level 1

15-11-2019 15:00

The US Secret Service is a government organization. It releases a detailed report about US school attacks. There are many school attacks in the US. The report says that the attacks can be preventable.

The report says that some of the same things happen before the attacks. The students who attack their schools can be bullied. These students can have behavior problems. They tell people about their attacks before they do them.

However, the Secret Service also says that it is not easy to know which students can do a school attack. The organization says that schools need to find students who show warning signs. They need to get them help.

Difficult words: preventable (when someone can stop something from happening), to be bullied (when other people make a person feel bad by saying means words or hurting him or her), warning sign (a behavior that tells you a person can do something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
