    Perhaps if the country was as interested in educating our children as they are in setting up a security theater for our children, the country wouldn't be in such a mess as a whole.

    We are really considering spending money to turn our schools into fortresses with armed guards on staff, when our students are ranking as merely "average" in reading, science, and math?

    Talk about some messed up priorities.

    Perhaps the students' parents ought to get involved with them and we wouldn't be discussing either of these things. How about that as a solution.
