The task force members will bring to the table a variety of perspectives. We ask them — and the lawmakers who will ultimately decide whether to make statewide policy changes — not to forget the perspective of a 6-year-old. School is a place where children learn and then practice balance. They learn that there's a time and place for reckless abandon and a time to focus on schoolwork or other pursuits.
For many children, school is the safest place they know. It needs to remain so but preferably not in a manner that leaves them fearful and with an ever-present reminder that the bad guys might be waiting.
Finding that balance won't be easy. No measure is foolproof. And for all their energy and innocence, many 6-year-olds are also mighty perceptive and sensitive. By all means, let's keep them safe. And in doing so, we must remember not to shatter their childlike sense of safety.
