  1. I Want NAMES !! We are not talking about 1973, and having a deer rifle in the rifle rack of your pickup truck. THIS was a damn pistol in a backpack. The parents need to be called out on this as well, which is why I said NAMES. NO EXCUSES !

  2. As reported a little while ago, this kid was 14 years-old, and was in a “self-contained” classroom. Per my wife, the only self-contained arenas are now what would classed as “mentally retarded”.

It could very well belong to his parent, and was stupidly left unsecured. This also means that the owner of said gun should be publicly called out, and charged. Still, no excuses…

  3. I commend the principal, You can not address problems unless they are acknowledged. Columbia County schools are above the average. . Look at the test scores. While there are problems, they are less frequent than other environments.
    I was appalled when I read that the ranking system and grading of schools was to be discontinued. Parents need to know which schools are succeeding. I believe in school choice. Perhaps choice would motivate under achieving schools to do better.
