just received an email on who was to blame for the shooting at
jonesborough. i am an arkansas teacher. yes, most of our children
do know how to shoot guns, but you cannot put the blame on us for
teaching our children to use a gun for shooting wild game.
we need to look at parents, teachers, who our children socialize
with, what exposure our children have had to violent media, etc.
no, none of these any one things would cause a child to commit such
an act, but it does come together when we don't take the time to
listen to our children whether we are parent's, grandparent's,
teachers, etc. don't put the blame on the south.

by the way the comment about male teachers. i am a female teacher
and i don't think the male or female gender has to do with how we
relate to our students, it has to do with who we are and how we
present ourselves to our students.
