Connecticut District Not Happy With Proposal To Check Parent Volunteers

I’ve written quite a few posts about the problems with security policies some school districts are instituting.

Here’s the latest from Bridgeport, Connecticut:

A proposal to keep sex offenders and other criminals out of city schools by doing instant background checks and issuing photo IDs to all visitors could well be jettisoned before it is even tried.

Parents, members of the public and even school board members expressed concern that instead of keeping students safe, the system would become a deterrent to parent involvement for individuals who are undocumented, have pasts they want to put behind them or who worry about personal information being collected and stored by the school.
