That is certainly part and partial to solving this issue. Boys, and girls, should be allowed to be boys, and girls. Is it odd that in school, many
of my friends, and myself, favorite class involved just that? Playing games? A reasonable amount of rough-housing. Instead, we get playground
equipment removed as dangerous.
The playground is where most of us learned the rules of life. Generally speaking that rule was: You get back, exactly what you put out. That's a
generalization, of course, but the gist of it should come through.
Boycotting school, 'til the gun laws change.
That right there tells you all one really needs to know...he doesn't care about the kids, they're a tool for his agenda, or part of it, anyway. The
contents of my gun cabinet.
Who, praytell, Mr. former education sec. is going to educate the kids in the meantime?? You do realize, don't you, Mr. former education secretary,
that such things do take rather a largish amount of time?? So, in the meantime, who, Mr. former education sec., is going to make sure the kids can
read, write, and cipher to something resembling an acceptable level...?
How about, instead, we address teachers, and school admin. lack of accountability in allowing situations to fester until these horrifying acts occur?
You know, make actually do their jobs?? That, rather than worry about the contents of my gun cabinet?
Or is that too hard? I know it doesn't get the flashy headlines, but it might actually make a difference...
