Is 2018 Really 'Deadlier For Schoolchildren Than Service Mem

Is 2018 Really 'Deadlier For Schoolchildren Than Service Members'?, If the implication here is that being a student is riskier than joining the military—well, that's highly misleading, if not flat-out wrong. As The Washington Post admits, five paragraphs into the article, there are 50 million kids in American K-12 schools and just 1.3 million military service people. The raw school shooting casualty number is higher than the military fatality number at this particular point in 2018, but when we divide by the total number of people in each group, it remains the case that being a solider is 17 times more likely to result in death than being a student., https://reason.com/blog/2018/05/18/sant ... stics-2018,
