I remember the fire drills but don't recall any air raid drills. I can't imagine what children nowadays feel and think when they have to practice active shooter drills. Home schooling is becoming the norm for parents to keep their children safe.

Homeschooling works for those who can get by being a single income family. In today's economic times, often even two incomes have difficulty putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their heads. Also, I feel the homeschooled kids miss out on socialization skills they would learn if in school.
It seems ridiculous that people vote for politicians who are bought and paid for by the gun lobby. Rather than try to solve the issue of school children being slaughtered in classroom, seems all they want to do is put more guns in the schools. That solves nothing other than have the children and teachers accidental shootings or the firearms falling into the hands of the wrong people.
Metal detectors at school entryways no longer solve anything. Those wanting kill children and teachers can 3-D print a firearm, piece by piece, out of material which will go undetected.
I don't have the answers. It's gone entirely too far. Just feel so sorry for our grandkids and great grandkids having to deal with the mess we have left for them.
