    What happened to “We’ll update this post, as information is received.”?

    I wonder (as a non-parent) whether school officials have since been having dialogues with students about alternatives to conflict resolution and problem solving. I say this because despite the tragedy of Sandy Hook, with its publicity, I’m sure plenty of troubled kids saw the hoopla and “got a new idea” for how to handle what they’re going through. While it should be universally understood that killing people as a way to eliminate your stressors is wrong, I wonder if faculty and staff are going the extra mile to have assemblies discussing other choices with these kids, and reiterating not to resort to guns and violence. I’m sure there are people who are intent on doing bad things, but for the kids who may just be fed up with their situations and mulling over the idea of doing this just to retaliate, maybe hearing “do something ELSE” could remind them that things are never THIS bad.
