I was thinking about this very topic yesterday as part of a broader issue of how parents want it all(see today's post).

As a Superintendent we had this discussion numerous times with our school board.

There is a risk to freedom. Parents in the community I was in seemed to prefer erring on the side of freedom rather than safety.

School are notorious for their openness. Parents might say they want a controlled and safe environment until you sit down with a committee of them and then explore what has to be done to create a completely safe school. It might look like something out of a military experiment when you are finished designing it.
