    I think more families need to be looking at home-school options, charter schools if they commit to being hard targets, and online schooling options.

    How would charter schools be any different that public schools on this?

    I am NOT an expert on Charter Schools but aren't they Independent in many ways? And if so I assume they could make a much bigger commitment to school safety instead of playing a bunch of silly games which is all I see from most of the powers that be.

    I wouldn’t ask anything of KY teachers right now.

    I hear that. Teachers are the new Cops. Anything we can't solve we put on the shoulders of Teachers and Police Officers.

    That's what the government does best. Make us fix poor parents, unfed kids, protect the school, etc.......

    I haven't seen this floated out yet, but what about stationing national guard or federal troops at schools? If the uniforms make people wary and upset, have them wear a special uniform more like the police.

    I am guessing more amenable to what the clients demand and if safety is a priority of the parents then the charter school can respond a lot more quickly and with less outside input.
