Ridiculous over-reaction.

Thank God some school boards have sense! I think it's the best idea in YEARS.

Sure it won't solve the problem of troubled teens who have mental problems but until society decides institualization of insane people is needed then teachers and administrators need to be trained and armed in case they are needed.
