Meaning of the Ferguson’s riots: Ferguson Burning after grand jury’s decision

After three months of hearing, the grand jury decided last Monday evening not to indict a white police officer Daren Wilson for the murder of young black Michael Brown.  This decision has set off violent protests and racial unrest throughout the nation, crowds of protestors filled the streets, police cars and stores were set on fire following the announcement.

Demonstrators are marching from Ferguson to the Missouri governor's mansion in Jefferson City to protest the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.  Several people gathered in Ferguson on Saturday at the site where Brown was killed. The 120-mile march to Jefferson City will take seven days and was organized by the NAACP.  Organizers say the purpose is to call for new leadership in the Ferguson police department and for police reforms in the St. Louis suburb and throughout the U.S.   Each evening along the route, marchers will participate in what they call "teach-ins" and rallies. Organizers are encouraging people to join in and participate.

Washington State High School faces deadly violence, another victim dies

Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in the cafeteria of his Washington State High school about 34 miles north of Seattle, leading to deadly violence across campus.   "If you ask me, hunting is the BEST sport there is”.  This was a quote on Jaylen Fryberg’s Facebook page posted in February of this year.   In many ways he appeared to be a typical teen, liking video games and musical artists like Adele and 50 Cent among his favorite.

Witnesses say Jaylen Fryberg a popular freshman, opened fire Friday in the crowded lunchroom at Washington State high school.  He died in the attack, authorities ruled the death a suicide Monday. Authority’s also determined that the gun used belonged to Jaylen’s father.

Since the attack church vigils have taken place, people gathering and writing condolences in the nearby communities.The shootings have sent shock waves throughout the community.

Matt Remle, who has an office at Marysville-Pilchuck High School said he knew Fryberg and the other students well. "My office has been a comfort space for Native students," he said. "Many will come by and have lunch there, including the kids involved in the shooting”.  They all were "really happy, smiling kids," Remle said. "They were a polite group.  A lot of the kids from the freshman class were close-knit and loving”.  "These were not kids who were isolated," he said. "They had some amazing families”. These factors make the shooting that much more difficult to deal with, "Maybe it would be easier if we knew the answer," Remle said. "But we may never know”.

Zoe Galasso a student at Marysville-Pilchuck High School died at the scene Friday, four others injured were hospitalized with fatal injuries said authorities.  Of the wounded students and cousins of Jaylen Fryberg were14-year-old Nate Hatch who remains in serious condition in intensive care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and fifteen-year-old Andrew Fryberg who also in critical condition in intensive care.  And 14-year-old Shaylee Chuckulnaskit remains in critical condition in intensive care at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

Sunday night news came that Gia Soriano, 14, who had been in critical condition with head injuries, succumbed to her wounds at the Providence Regional Medical Center died. "We are devastated by this senseless tragedy," Gia's family said in a statement. "Gia is our beautiful daughter and words cannot express how much we will miss her."  The family will donate her organs.

The violence at Marysville-Pilchuck High School marked the latest in a series of deadly rampages at American schools that have played a central role in a national debate over gun laws.  In 2012, a 20-year-old gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and killed 20 children and six adults before taking his own life in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

$15 billion education budget for 2014-15 signed by Gov. Rick Snyder

$15 billion education budget for 2014-15 signed by Gov. Rick Snyder
Michigan: Governor Snyder was joined at the bill signing by winning students from the state's FIRST Robotics competition in April. Michigan invested $3 million in the program this year and the 2015 education budget includes another $2 million in district grants. The budget represents an investment in the state's schools, Snyder said, highlighting additional funding for schools. The $15.8 billion spending package adds a minimum $50 boost to every K-12 district's foundation allowance, and includes extra money for lower-funded schools, although critics have complained the extra funds will disproportionately go to charter and cyber schools, which have lower overhead costs and receive less money.

Minority Democrats say some schools aren’t getting enough of a funding increase given rising payments districts must make for retiree pension and health care coverage. Snyder says that lower-funded school districts will receive more state aid to reduce a gap between them and higher-funded districts.

Snyder plans to sign the $37.5 billion general budget bill within a week once it reaches his desk.
