Timely advice! A couple acquaintances in Ridgecrest are currently dealing with this situation with their kids.

Increasing number of children killed by flu epidemic
Everything that can be done to reduce the spread of the flu should be done by the school and at home.

Bulletproof backpacks being sold in wake of school shooting
Would you pay good money for a false sense of security? Many parents would and so greedy scumbags are producing products that will make themselves rich while only providing a warm feeling in the heart that at least you did something to protect your kids even if that something is nothing more than symbolic and provides only a false sense of security.

wildrose: Lots of opportunists will take advantage of fear and sell people that magically FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY. It works every time!

Trump administration takes aim at Education Department
I'm still skeptical of DeVos's motives, but the reforms listed in this news clip are positive.

wildrose: DeVos is just making a few no-brainer popular moves to win the support and confidence of the general public. Before the end of Trump's term she will inflict plenty of damage. I hope I'm wrong, but I think the writing is on the wall, as they say.

Inside The Safest School In America
This is a little extreme IMHO. There are more practical approaches to the problem which cost fewer dinero.

mrgreen: Entrepreneurial types are licking their chops over this latest school shooting. They are about as opportunistic as they come and there are school boards and school administrators who are going to be complete suckers for their sales pitches. It's hard to say how many millions of dollars will be wasted on products and services which provide nothing more than a FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY!

wildrose and mrgreen: The smoke emitters in that video seemed like the biggest waste of money ever. Chances are that they will never be used and if they do they won't work as hoped. In fact, it is more likely that they will cause death or injury to students than do anything to stop a shooter who is familiar with that school. People need to calm down and look at this issue rationally!

I saw something about Trump wanting to arm teachers who were in the military. I'd be worried about a case of PTSD and the person going off over some unruly student behavior. He said something about hardening school security. I think the only thing that's hardening are his arteries and that's causing the flow of blood to his brain to be getting cut off.
