Called Generation Under Fire, WJXT is partnering with the Public Policy Institute at Jacksonville University to air the special this Wednesday night at 8 from the campus at Jacksonville University.
“Perhaps it is because of the proximity to Jacksonville or the articulate way the students expressed themselves after the Parkland tragedy, or perhaps this is the tipping point of what has become an issue we can no longer ignore,” said Bob Ellis WJXT’s general manager.
“No matter your personal feelings, there is a common thread that we at New4JAX have determined is worth spending our airtime and efforts trying to solve, and that is keeping our families safe.”
Students, parents, educators and law enforcement will discuss ways in which dangerous situations are handled in local school districts, and how students — more outspoken and eager to participate than ever before — can get involved to help prevent a tragedy from happening in a Jacksonville area school.
