Loaded gun found at Clayton

From WPXI:

It's worth noting: None of the "reforms" of the last five years have done anything to improve school safety.

Have to give them credit for finding the gun.

"Have to give them credit for finding the gun."

Right you are, Questioner.

But there's one thing I'm sure of. If the Clayton principal hasn't received a phone call from central administration yet, the call will come tomorrow.

The principal will NOT be congratulated for having an alert staff.

The principal WILL be admonished for allowing the story to slip out into the papers.

It is not that uncommon for a weapon (or hard drugs, etc.) to be found in the schools. What is uncommon is for the story to get out.

I have never understood how the Clayton relationship works. Initially, wasn't the plan to have no PPS staff there only CEP staff? And even when Mr. Bullard retired and became principal of Clayton it seemed that was how the relationship was designed. If so, why would a PPS vehicle be there? It seems that they should have CEP provided security. Same could be said of cafeteria staff. Maybe the A+ audit will incover issues with the contract for CEP that need to be addressed.

As long as the kid is still on the pathway to the promise, hey, it's ok. Surprised the PR people didn't snuff this story out.

Principal Bullard and the CEP staff are to be commended for finding the weapon. Unfortunately, we live in a society where teenagers or anyone else for that matter can purchase an illegal gun on the streets. Thank goodness no one was injurred. The protocol established at CEP by Principal Bullard was successful.
