High School Fitted with a Shooting Range

August 11, 2013

 

range

A terribly irresponsible idea indeed:

When North Atlanta High School in Georgia opened its doors on Wednesday, students were greeted by a number of unusual features: a 900-car parking deck, a broadcast and video center, and an indoor shooting range.

The high school recently switched locations at a cost of $147 million, making it the most expensive public high school ever built in Georgia, according to The New York Times. While the 11-story school offers state-of-the-art facilities, the specific decision to put in the shooting range, which will be used by the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program and the rifle team, has elicited media attention and some parental concern.

“I’ll probably question it a little bit just to get a better idea,” said parent Donna Jones, according to local outlet WSB-TV. “Like I said, I didn’t understand why they’re going to be doing that, but I think they’re going to be very careful in protecting the students.”

Others are confident that the shooting range will be safe. “I can see why they would be concerned, but I know they go through lots of training and they’re heavily supervised,” high school senior Turner Hume told WSB-TV.

The Children Must Be Safe Because Their Teacher is Carrying a Gun

December 26, 2012

Teachers who think that bringing a loaded gun to school protects their students have rocks in their head. After the shocking events of last week our children to be reassured not bodyguarded. They need to feel that school is a safe place.

When a teacher decides to bring a gun to school they are encouraging already anxious kids to become more worried and insecure. Our children need to be sheltered from guns, not see them as a normal everyday imperative for ones own security.

I detest the idea of putting guns in the hands of the very people instituted to be our children’s role models.

The teacher who decided to bring a gun to school may have thought she was protecting her students, but are our students so much safer in such an environment?:

Fear over the Newtown school shooting prompted a Minnesota teacher to bring a loaded gun to school last week, forcing a school lockdown. The unnamed teacher, a female in her 50s, has been placed on administrative leave from Seward Montessori School in Minneapolis.

“This is the first case like this I’ve ever heard of,” Minneapolis police Sgt. Bill Palmer told KMSP. “In this day in age in this week, handguns in schools are of great concern to everyone.”

Acting on a tip from a staff member, the school principal alerted the school resource officer, who confiscated the gun from the teacher, in her 21st year of employment at the school. The loaded .357 Magnum handgun was in the educator’s locker in the teacher’s lounge, according to the Star Tribune. School officials confirm that no students or staff were harmed or injured.

While the teacher was not arrested, she could face misdemeanor charges for violating conditions of her Minnesota conceal carry permit, which prohibits firearms in schools without written permission from a principal or school official.

Parents were notified of the incident by phone.

No Wonder Children Hate School

August 29, 2012

Political correctness and stringent regulations are further stifling young children. Some of these schools rules are so bizarre and so out-of-touch. one wonders what lame brained soul conjured them up.

Any school that tries to persuade a young deaf boy to change his name because the hand signal for his name looks too much like a gun, has serious problems:

In a move blasted by rights groups, a 3-year-old-deaf boy has been told by his Nebraska school district to change the way he signs his name because the gesture resembles shooting a gun.

Hunter Spanjer uses the standard S.E.E., Signing Exact English. He crosses his index and middle fingers and waves them slightly to signify his name. And, Grand Island Public Schools’ policy forbids any “instrument” that “looks like a weapon,” reported NCN (see video above).

While crossing his fingers is a slight modification to the standard gesture, one meant to give it the personal touch, according to NCN, Hunter’s family is outraged by the district’s reaction.

“Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous,” Hunter’s grandmother Janet Logue told NCN. “This is not threatening in any way.”

Hunter’s dad, Brian Spanjer, told The Huffington Post on Tuesday: “I feel like it was an overreach on their part and I expected a lot better from the local school district.”
