President Trump’s commission on school safety has recommended ending a a federal guideline instructing schools not to punish minority students at higher rates than others. The commission, formed after the Parkland school shooting on Feb. 14 that killed 17 people, is said to largely sidestep making any recommendations to tighten access to firearms. The report will be released Tuesday, but has been seen by The Wall Street Journal. It recommends that states or districts consider arming school personnel, and urges districts to take steps to “harden” their exteriors, including by installing blast-proof glass. It also calls on states and cities to adopt laws making it easier for courts to temporarily remove guns from people who pose a danger to themselves or others. It goes on to say that local agencies should develop ratings systems for violent videogames, which the report claims contributes to a culture of violence, and urges all government communications to omit the names of specific mass shooters.
