Voted by Book Authority as one of the ten best social policy books of all time!

The Parkland school shooting was the most avoidable mass murder in American history. And the policies that made it inevitable are being forced into public schools across America.

“After my sister Meadow was murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the media obsessed for months about the type of rifle the killer used. It was all clickbait and politics, not answers or justice. That wasn’t good enough for us. My dad is a real tough guy, but Meadow had him wrapped around her little finger. He would do anything she wanted, and she would want him to find every answer so that this never happens again.

My dad teamed up with one of America’s leading education experts to launch his own investigation. We found the answers to the questions the media refused to ask. Questions about school safety that go far beyond the national gun debate. And the answers to those questions matter for parents, teachers, and schoolchildren nationwide.

If one single adult in the Broward County school district had made one responsible decision about the Parkland shooter, then my sister would still be alive. But every bad decision they made makes total sense once you understand the district’s politically correct policies, which started here in Broward and have spread to thousands of schools across America.”

—Hunter Pollack, “Foreword”


  • Full of actionable and effective solutions

    By Libertarian14
    Most of this book is infuriating due to the willful incompetence or outright negligence on display in Broward county. The suggested solutions really are brilliant though.
  • GREAT BOOK!!!!

    By Jeremy Clements
    Seriously, read this book. It will blow your mind. I don’t have children but I do have nieces and nephews and it terrifies me that these are the people in charge of them every day at school. This needs to be fixed.
  • A «must read” book

    By PierresFamily
    Anyone who cares about the safety of our school students and staff, and about the treatment and education will of troubled students, will be doing themselves a favor, by reading this book by the parent of a Parkland School murder victim. “Why Meadow Died” is informative without being dry, moving without being maudlin, and very well-documented for those who want to check facts and do further reading. I rarely give a 5-star rating. Those should be reserved for superb books, and this one is superb.
  • Confirming a change needs to be made.....

    By Bob J in Montana
    Given me a eye opening analysis of how social justice warriors have put our children and grand children in danger.... should be a must read for all parents and school board members.... this should be a public dialogue in all school board meetings around the country. We need to take our schools back!!!

  • A moving and eloquent account of a terrible situation

    By David H Dennis
    The story of a horrible man who needed help but could never get it thanks to a toxic brew of political correctness and incompetence. Mix in school officials who cared more about appearance than results and you get mass murder. A convincing account of a catastrophe.
  • Great title for a great yet sad book!

    By pollywade
    An insightful book that tells the truth about a tragedy and the failures that led to it by our district “leaders”!
