Personally, I do not think that the Superintendent of L.A. Unified School District is over reacting with his decision to close the schools today due to threats. It is a hard decision to make but like what he mentioned he can not take the risk given the recent events in California. The main purpose is to make sure that the children are safe. Besides they are doing it in a calm and organized way. It is indeed easy to make criticisms. Maybe it is better if we all just help each other find out the source and make sure that people are safe. If it ends up to be a hoax, then it is good. Better safe than sorry.
As a parent, I have no problem with this. In fact I am grateful that the leaders are doing their job to protect us.
