GW WonkCast S3E9-2: Above the Fold: Using Predictive Analytics to Address Gun Violence in Schools

For example, applications could help children reach out for mental health help, or indicators could show students that frequently miss school. Listen to a moving segment that weighs the pros and cons of using technology to address this issue.
