Are there classrooms where students are told where and/or how to sit? Police interrogation rooms are like this, of course, but… Are students in any of your schools ever required to have letters of transit to move from one place to another. Yes, we use the more polite term “hall pass” but there is no difference… Are students marked down for being late? For missing a class even if you know they are safe and in the building? Is compliance considered part of the evaluation system?
Are we playing it safe? Yes. Are we required to play it safe? No. Does society force us to play it safe? Yes.
