Any wonder why more and more parents are opting out for homeschooling or private school education. The public school system is fast becoming a toilet.

This is very unusual for this area.. Chardon has an extremely small school system of about 3k or less

Chardon is located in Geauga County which is a pretty rural area. Shocked that this would happen in this typically peaceful city.

I live in the cleveland area. According to the local media, the shooter was a student who brought a gun to school 7:30 am 4 shots fired in the cafeteria. They don’t know how many student involved or how many are hurt. School is on lock down.

This is my alma mater, and my Mom is a former employee (retired).

She hasn’t heard much other than what’s on the news.

When I was a youth, Chardon was a decent-sized town in a mostly rural community with the distinction of being the county seat.

As I was going through HS, and definitely after, it became very “yuppified” and is now a much more wealthier, desireable (and crowded) place to live (if you’re into that sorta thing).

Known as both the Maple Syrup capital of the state (with it’s annual festival), and one of the heaviest snow-bound communities in this part of the state in the winter.

My point exactly. This kind of stuff is no longer limited to BIG city and BIG school district educational facilities. The small towns and cities in the U.S. are just as vulnerable to this type of activity. More and more single parent kids, bad-asses (or at least they think they are), misfits, druggies, little ho’s, would be rappers, etc. are moving into the small city and town school districts. As such, the folks who were born and raised in these towns must now tolerate hooligans who terrorize their once cherished educational facilities.

Soledad O’Brien on CNN is tipping off the perps: Several students are hiding and texting from the cafeteria.

Just one more reason to pull your kids out of government schools.

Unless, of course, you don't want to deprive them of the social bonding ritual that takes place among their peers after a school shooting.

That’s sort of like saying you shouldn’t homeschool your kids because Andrea Yates killed all her homeschooled kids.

Are you sure Andrea killed her kids during school hours?

FoxNews says four children wounded... 3 boys - 1 girl, suspect in custody...

I know we should all be concerned only about the kids, BUT FN also puts up headline - “FBI Swat Team surrounds school”... SO I ASK - How did this instantly become a Federal Matter? What happened to the County Sheriff, the local police department and the Ohio State Patrol? How did Federal law enforcement gain instant jurisdiction in one small school in one small Ohio town? This is NOT GOOD FOLKS.... not good. Even if it was a Terrorist (Islamic or otherwise) State and Local Law Enforcement should handle these problems and the FBI not be called in UNLESS some criteria is met that actually indicates a cross state border involvement of some kind...

They just had an official from Chardon explain: The county police have primary jurisdiction. When something like this happens...because there was a call that came in with the words "actively shooting, " all you mentioned immediately respond to the scene. Each has a particular duty. He specifically mentioned the involvement of the FBI, city police, county police...noting that the county police are in charge. So, the FBI is there as a matter of procedure, in this case, and I guess their responsibility is to do what they are now doing.

How frightening for everyone there. Actually, words are not enough to use to express the horror of this. Prayers for the ones who were shot, and for their families, and everyone.

My Screen Name is there for a reason: I'm a traditioinal person, and always have been.

My GOAL in life, when I got married to my wife 45 years ago, was to provide her a home, comfort, and a family that she could raise at home, making enough money that would allow her to focus on HER job (homemaker), while I focused on MINE (career/bread-winner).

She never had to work outside the home, and the team did fine. Leaving "latch-key" kids at home alone, eschewing the nuclear family, has led us to where we are in this country today (f$%^ed up).

If you cannont afford to provide for children WITHOUT DESTROYING THE NUCLEAR FAMILY, then don't have kids, period, IMHO.

The promotion of "women in the workforce" destroyed Mom's traditional role, and the Dad's traditional role.

Because TAXES are so g-damned high to provide for the parasites of this country, women were FORCED to gain additional income in too many families, and they became (expectedly) dis-functional, as I see it.

Couple that with free-wheeling attitudes about sex, drugs, and feeling good taught in Liberal-infested skoolz, and you have a recipe for the moral decay we've come to live with today.

Historically, and not just in the idyllic late ‘40’s and ‘50’s, I mean for thousands of years...women *were* working - they were working the fields, they were washing dishes by hand, doing laundry by hand, cooking meals, growing and preserving food, making clothes, mending clothes, cleaning the house, tending to livestock, infants and toddlers, etc.

Kids were left to fend for themselves and care for siblings, or shipped off to a country school house every morning, or sent to work. The exception has always been the small minority of wealthier families, and they usually employed nannies and nurses to help.

And many women were so poorly educated that even if they wanted to home school their kids, they couldn’t. Because girls’ educations were a very low priority for most of history. Again, there are exceptions. There are ALWAYS exceptions.

This idea that women *used* to stay home and homeschool their kids, nurture their kids until they were off on their own, but no longer do so, is absurd.

Not that you asked, but in my opinion, the downfall of most societies comes from excessive free time. Idle hands, idle minds, etc.

I agree 100% but also believe the lack of unadulterated discipline is also the problem today.
We were “latch key” children as were basically everyone we knew and never even heard that term till much later in life,so we thought we were the norm.
There were many things to do immediately after coming in from school,homework,laundramat etc and even to start cooking.
and you better believe they were done.
Everyone pulled their weight and our parents worked hard to get ahead as in simply moving on to better area and home ownership .

Exactly.

Oh, and don’t forget: adults were all on the same team with regard to discipline. You screwed up out of your parents reach and there was always an adult around to reprimand you. Now it doesn’t happen and kids get away with stuff.

I lived in Chardon until 2007 when we moved to SC ..my daughter teaches at the middle school which is in front of the high school. Very surprising that this occured in Chardon a sleepy little conservative town, middle class...lots of families. Of course, this can happen anywhere.

What a world we live in where you cannot feel safe going to school. I blame this on the demise of the families. Women working and not being home to see what their kids are doing. I worked my whole life so I understand the need, I'm not trashing working woman but I really think this is when our country went haywire. My daughter is fine still in lockdown until all students are gone.
