WATCH: Columbine Victim’s Father — ‘No Matter How Many Laws We Pass,’ It Won’t Stop Shootings

 

Darrell Scott, father of Rachel Scott, the first victim of the shooting at Columbine High School, told Bold TV today that lawmakers would be unable to completely stop school shootings. Scott says schools are failing our children by becoming profession-oriented, instead of character-oriented.

“If we practice in the home, if we practice in the school, if we practice in our relationships with each other, a little more empathy, listen a little more, talk a little less, spending more time trying to connect, we will eliminate a lot of the problem,” Scott said.No matter how many laws we pass, it’s not going to stop school shootings. Young people are going to find a way to vent, older people as well. If someone has it in their mind to kill others, they will find a way to do that.”

Scott said schools moved away from the education philosophy of Horace Mann, which entailed a focus on the full person, the three H’s: the heart, the head and the hand. In the early 1900s, Scott said John Dewey changed the focus of education to the process–rather than the person–and education shifted to the three R’s: reading, writing, arithmetic. Rachel’s Challenge aims to fill this more modern void and shape young people’s character by inspiring a permanent positive change through the organization’s programing, which encourages students to communicate, empathize and listen to one another. According to Rachel’s Challenge, news reports indicate programming from Scott’s team has prevented seven school shootings and prevents 150 suicides annually.
