- Gun Safety
- Community Safety
- Trafficking Awareness
- Cyber Security
Is a meeting really needed for one simple message?
Don't do stupid stuff!
For "Gun Safety", have there been any classes or instruction in gun "safety"; you know, safe gun handling, use, shooting straight, when to shoot (and when not to), cleaning, storage? Of course not. "People are good. Guns are bad." That's the message from those who are indoctrinating students (and adults).
BeSmart says "gun locks". Did those kids who took guns to schools have gun locks? Of course not.
For "Community Safety", don't go to parks after hours and hang out in large groups, who are likely to become rowdy or attract troublemakers. Don't treat malls like playgrounds. They are shopping centers. Shop; then leave.
For "Trafficking Awareness", stay away from drugs. Don't run away. Don't "slip out" at night. Don't get in cars with people you don't know or don't trust.
For "Cyber Security", don't bully; report all attempts by someone to bully you.
It all boils down to Don't Do Stupid Stuff.
If the kids don't know that already, a 6:00PM Monday night meeting at R2i2 won't get through to them.
Why is the Board-directed Safety Committee sponsoring this? This is completely outside its scope of authority. The Safety Committee should be receiving suggestions, requests, and recommendations from Administration for improving safety in the schools and then making recommendations to the Board for action. Instead, the Committee, led by three board members, is meddling in school operations.
There was hardly anyone in the room, and only about 35 viewers online. More could have been accomplished with five-minute .vignettes shown on the District's website and on schools' information sites. The BeSmart was the same old pre-packaged garbage from Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety (an anti-gun group) and MOMs Demand Action (another anti-gun group), and weakly presented. Gun Safety SHOULD mean safe gun handling and demonstrations of the destruction caused by careless gun use. Why is this even Board-led? It's another example of meddling in the superintendent's realm of authority.ReplyDelete
