Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Friday that it was "tragically necessary" for parents to pull their children out of school en masse until U.S. gun laws are changed. In a tweet, the former Obama administration official asked what would happen if no children went to school until "gun laws changed to keep them safe."
"My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he asked.
What is the gun law you are proposing, Mr. Duncan?
No one even wants to take a good hard close look at everything that has been done and went so very very wrong that these shootings still happen. No one wants to stop the bullying that always seems to precede these kids going over the edge. No one wants to stop the psychoactive drugs fed to our kids causing suicidal and homicidal ideation. No one wants to address the lead and endocrine-disrupters and other pollutants in our air, water, soil, food, etc., that effect everyone's mental and emotional stability.
Personally, if I still had kids of school age, I would have pulled them out already for home-schooling. I'm sure more parents would do the same if it were an option... I wish it were an option for more parents. I'd also like to see more online classes for kids, rather than shuffling kids like cattle in ever growing bricks-and-mortars.
Sorry to butt in
Already there are many online higher-learning institutions, regionally accredited. Then again, isn't part of elementary, junior high, and high school learning how to be social creatures? Meeting girls/guys? If we restrict our kids to online learning, how to we socialize them?
I think it's a great suggestion, and I do think that individually-paced education is the best way to educate, and why not do it with computers? Thanks again for your thoughtful post, and I look forward to your reply!

If all the schools were closed, there would be other targets that the CIA would choose for their MK Ultra/ Monarch program zombies to perform false flag attacks.
Churches, concerts, movie theaters and such. What, they have already been targeted?
It is just that schools are full of children, think of the children. Such a choice target to use for pulling heartstrings.
