When we send our children off to school we think they are going to be protected by those in authority over them. Keeping our children safe while they attend school is at the forefront of most parents minds these days. We see how Los Angeles County responded to credible threats of terrorism today. They closed down approximately 1000 schools. Approximately 640,000 Los Angeles County students were told to stay home. This after receiving credible threats of harm at LA area schools.
We applaud LA County for putting student safety first. We are sure most parents are grateful for that level of caution. But, what do we do when those in authority over our children are not interested in student safety?
