    Not exactly progress

    I live right across the street. There's 6 cop cars blocking the exit, and the school is still in lock down.

    Student arrest after report of gun at Mark Morris

    More reason to get rid of private schools.

    As a parent, I would be livid at a lock down where I didn't have access to my child.

    Get rid of private schools?? I'm guessing that's a typo?

    For sure. Although, i read that they were allowing kids to go home with their parents.

    Now, turns out the kid had a knife, not a gun but cops aren't saying where they found the knife. Oh, and the kid was arrested off school property too.

    So we had every cop in the area at the school, M4's in hand... All for a knife.

    Damn yes it was a very bad gaff, I meant Public Schools.

    In the very least get rid of DOE, and make them local again.

    From my read the kid didn't have the knife on him at time of contact either. Any excuse to use their military forces. I personally think it would have been way better to send a couple plain clothes guys in investigate and nab the one kid. This whole put everybody in danger and break out all the guns and cause a huge scene is just a disturbing sign of how desperately they want a police state.

    I could see some use for the DoE. Say, slash their budget by 99% and reduce them to a purely advisory role. The DoE would be free to suggest curricula and standards, and the (entirely private) schools could choose whether or not to adopt them, thus being able to claim "DoE Accreditation" or some such. Other organizations would be free to advocate their own curricula. The effectiveness of the department and its systems could be judged by how many schools were still accredited by it a few years later, vs how many wouldn't touch it with a 99-1/2 foot pole.
