Originally this was under the topic-Art and sports:
I watched some of the Town/School Meeting Clinton had with
students
in VA today. This school had Peer Mediators set up and a Hotline you
could call anonymously. They also had social workers and mental
health care on their facilities to help with more serious problems.
This seems to cover a wide range of potential problems before they
would get out of hand. It would be great to see this implemented in
all schools. I don't know if xray and searches at the schools are
needed, but you haven't seen any of these terrorist attacks yet
happen in the urban setting. This appears to happen in suburban
"SAFE" neighborhoods. All I keep thinking is, it is not just one
problem it is many and we need the whole community to care and be
involved. The father of one of the Black students who was killed
said that his son did say they were picked on by this group, but he
felt it was something his son could handle and could put up with. He
said it didn't appear to be out of hand and he had to learn to live
with everyone. Now he wishes he would have said something to the
principal. So I guess the best advise is - not wait for a situation
to escalate and it's better to be safe than sorry.
