S Shealey, "school is for receiving an education, that is all"... Huh?
Our children are in the care of the schools for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. We are asked to trust the schools with our children's safety. None of us wants to be THAT parent; the one who completely overreacts, but this situation makes us question the judgement of the schools. Are you suggesting that the thousands of children in Atlanta schools should have all been checked out before school was cancelled at 1:45? Schools are charged with educating our children and keeping them safe in the process. What they did was put every child in harm's way, whether they were stuck on a bus or with a parent on the dangerous roads. L M
