On February 14th, 2018, a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, killing 17 students and staff members. It was the deadliest school shooting in American history. In the following weeks and months, debates raged about what could have prevented the tragedy, and conversations about gun control and mental health policy took center stage.

For Andrew Pollack, father of 18 year old victim Meadow Pollack, and education researcher Max Eden, Parkland was the most avoidable mass shooting in American history. In their book published last year, “Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies that Created the Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students,” they offer their take on how the shooting could have been avoided. Max joins host Nat Malkus to discuss the book and school safety lessons he hopes everyone will learn from Parkland.
