New Policy Brief on School Shooting Survivors by Associate Professor Maya Rossin-Slater
From the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR): The impact on kids who live through the shootings
The massacre in Uvalde, Texas, is a stark reminder that school shootings are a horrific American phenomenon. SIEPR Senior Fellow Maya Rossin-Slater has conducted extensive research that shows how school shootings impact the mental health, educational attainment and economic outcomes of children who witness them.
In this new SIEPR policy brief, Rossin-Slater details the lingering cost of school shootings and shows policymakers a path to help care for those who survive them.
Highlighting Rossin-Slater's research during these tragedies is meant to give policymakers and others a deeper understanding of the long-term implications of school shootings. We invite you to explore more of her related work on our website.
“Congress and statehouses throughout the U.S. can ensure that schools, families, and communities have access to mental health resources and financial support. This is of paramount importance if our society wants to give these children a chance at prevailing as happy, successful, and productive adults.”
