Take strong steps to make schools safer

To the Mayor of Parkland, Fla: Especially as a former teacher, you are wrong to say that we failed the murderer of the 17 people. The system failed this recalcitrant. There were definite warning signs and nothing was done. There are far too many ticking time bombs sitting in classrooms throughout the country. Nothing is done when egregious behavior is reported. In fact, we give excuses for these people: socially maladjusted, economically disadvantaged, culturally deprived and all other ultra-liberal catch phrases. These students need immediate attention and removal from schools. In New York City, we had the “600 school” concept for the unruly and as soon as that was done away with, discipline in our schools deteriorated very badly. Comment
