    Our Marketing Communications class at Johns Hopkins University needs insights from high school counselors for a class project around countering targeted violence in schools.  Our survey looks into targeted violence in high schools and how school counselors approach this problem, as well as what could be done better moving forward. We are looking to create a product or service that helps address this and provides resources to counselors in high schools for addressing targeted violence.
