Some parents fear sending their children to school as Charm City faces a surge in youth homicides and shootings.

“The school-to-prison pipeline — or really the school-to-grave pipeline — is really real in Baltimore City,” Jovani Patterson, who has two young children, told Fox News.

Baltimore City Public Schools held a ceremony last week remembering the 19 students shot and killed within the past year. The youngest victim was 8 years old. The previous year, gunfire claimed the lives of 12 students.

Some of the shootings occurred on or near school grounds, while others happened elsewhere in the community. (Excerpt from Fox News.)
