Schools are unbelievably cold - even here in Okinawa. They leave the windows open all day with strong winds blowing so hard, it blows the posters right off the walls in the hallway. Their excuse it "change air, change air". That is okay, but should only be during cleaning time and right after lunch (which basically is cleaning time). Windows should be "cracked" open but not wide open all day long. This is why kids get so sick among other factors. Keep the bodies warm.

I wouldn't even touch it. I would take a picture of it and report it to law enforcement.

I teach in Okinawa. Every school here is at risk. Where are we going to move them?

I doubt they will remember much. Hope the survivors recover.

Sharia law is expanding all over it seems. Death penalty in this case very much unjustified. He didn't wake up that morning planning all of this. Yes, he was negligent but he didn't plan on doing this. No death penalty.

Sexualization of women. It just never stops. Is this really worth coming up with? I wouldn't mind it saying "Prettiest woman" or "Cutest woman" but does it have to say "Sexiest"? Not appropriate.

I'd give them a warning and let them resume their duties. It's not like anyone's life was in danger. But if they did it a second time, I would have to show them the door.

One boy dead, one family devastated, and the life of a driver ruined. He should not be charged in my opinion.

He needs help but should also be billed for the services the police provided. The police could have likely been used somewhere else for someone who really needs help such as a rescue situation or someone who is being harmed by someone else. Help for him is in order here.
