http://www.news9.com/story/23096480...-star-spencer-high-after-brawl-outside-school Do you think it's a bad idea for individual schools to train and certify a group of teachers to carry weapons and mace in order to protect the school and classrooms against violence? (gangs, possible mass shootings, etc..) It's not exactly uncommon for this stuff to spill over into school time, though I've been surprised at how much is kept out of school. They do a good job here and the kids don't WANT to be caught so usually save it for later, but it still is sad that school has to be a threatening place for kids who have so much potential. Which leads me to...mandatory education. Do you believe education should be compulsory? Would it make it better on the kids who want to learn if the ones who didn't want to learn were allowed to leave the equation, and better for the economy if the gap between the employable and unemployable was widened?
