  • Why should we have cops in school?

    Kids are perfectly safe in schools just the way they are. Imagine if you were a kid sitting at your'e desk about to take a test when all of a sudden you hear a grunt. And when you look up you see a cop staring you in the eye OH JOLLY ME! JUST MAKING SURE YOUR'E NOT A MASS KILLER!

  • Depends which school

    Some schools have seen decreased funding over the years and have seen their local economies go down the toilet. Any school in this situation or any school in a poor. High-crime area is very likely to have seen better days in the past. The recent 2008 recession only worsened these kinds of neighborhoods (and others) so certain schools (due to demographic and economic changes) are no longer safe anymore.

    On the contrary, you have schools where the conditions improved. Where demographics and economics have worked in that schools favor and made a much more trouble-free school. Therefore saying all schools are unsafe is a myth, but so is saying all schools are.

    Life is never linear.

  • Yes, school is definitely still safe and is much safer than in the past.

    Despite the overflowing headlines of school shootings and the like, schools are in fact safer than they were years ago. Procedures are in place in case of an emergency and locks are on all doors leading outside. Some schools even have metal detectors and security guards. These weren't in place in the past.

  • Yes, kids are still safe in school

    Regardless of all the recent violent killings that have happened in schools, kids are still relatively safe in school. These kinds of actions will occur whether or not safety protocols are established in schools. The question remains on whether proper parenting should be in place in order to prevent these kinds of actions to begin with.

  • Just As Safe As Before

    Your children are in no more danger now, than they were last week, a year ago, or a decade ago. Children, especially teens, are prone to violence. Remember your history studies, wars break out when the majority of the population is young. Children can be dangerous and there is always a possibility of violence in schools. Sheltering children from places like a public school is probably worse than letting them go.

  • Well yes, if you mean generally

    Honestly, no where is safe. You could spend your whole life with never going outside, living in a steel box, know what to do in every situation and still die. But the chance is EXTREMELY low. Same thing with schools. There is a chance, but it is very, very tiny.

  • Wait a minute.....Safe despite death... What?!

    Those of you who say schools are safe despite recent killings, I have a question. What makes school safe? Use your brain. If someone is killed, it obviously isn't safe. Stupidity. You are the problem with this country. Good isn't evil and evil isn't good, no matter what the authorities or news sources may say. Don't get it twisted, yall.

  • Schools will never be safe

    I do not believe that schools are safe because there is no way for teachers to help us kids be safe. To make schools safe we need school cops for every school in the district. So no schools aren't safe. And because in storms someone will get hurt no matter what happens! Also schools may look safe on the outside but in dangerous happenings, something will go wrong.

  • No, kids are not safe anywhere anymore

    No, I do not believe kids are safe in school anymore. I don't think there is any place that is really safe anymore. Life has changed and not necessarily for the better. Families have a lot of stress just trying to make ends meet. There are a lot of emotional issues today that we didn't see twenty years ago.
