I was startled when I came in to work today and found out there was gun threat at a local school, known for great academics and a lot of parental support. It turns out no gun was found, but the school had to go on lock down as a precaution. It is nerve wracking to think this could easily happen at my child's school. I know the thought has to go through the minds of other parents. Yes, security has been stepped up since Columbine, but so has violence. There is really no way to know which school could be attacked.
What are your thoughts about school violence? What do you think needs to be done to protect kids?
