They been reporting deadly Oklahoma Tornado for 2 days now then why did the Governor of Oklahoma cant suspend school for the Children's safety?

In asian countries, when a storm is about to hit, they suspend classes up to high school

It is hard to see that school in the news :(

For one thing, at least parts of the public schools are built to a higher standard than most private homes.

100% This!

Several times here in TN they have suspended or let out early for approaching bad weather. And a few times I have kept my Son home or picked him up yearly, if I felt the school should have suspended but didnt.

I'm in TN, too, and this does seem to be the norm here now, although a few years ago, it was customary to do an early release - that is until all those kids got caught on buses right in the middle of it.

Part of me thinks this should be the norm everywhere, but after looking at all the damage to the houses in the Moore area, you have to wonder if there wouldn't have been more fatalities if those kids had been in the houses. Most of the ones that were flattened were near the schools and those are very likely the houses the kids would have gone to.

1. Federal block grant money requires a certain number of days of school attended per year.
1a. But the USA is the only 1st world country with a 3 month "vacation" See teachers union.

2. No parents at home. Either both working, single parents,etc. Custody/visitation issues, etc. Closing schools is a huge logistical nightmare with massive ripple effects.

3. It is true that some schools are built better than residential structures, but in the old days you knew who had the best storm shelter on the block, and there was enough mutual trust for people to band together.

My question is why don't schools in that area have basements or underground shelters for the kids to go. If a tornado hit once there it is likely to happen again.

Suspend all the 10s of 1000s of schools that where in the moderate risk area?

Silly idea. There are severe storms almost every week somewhere in the USA, and any of those storms could produce a tornado. The chances of a certain school being hit by a EF5 tornado any certain day are millions to one. In reality, schools are safer than homes when it comes to most tornadoes. But unfortunately, every 10 or so years, a powerful EF5 tornado might hit a school.

If it would save just one life...........

We do need common sense tornado safety legislation to stop this sensless, avoidable slaughter in our schools. Children cannot learn in a constant state of fear, and I'm afraid that innocent children all over the tornado belt will be afraid to step inside a school until the congress passes some sort of common sense tornado bill.

Join me today to petition Barak Obama and Congress to do something, and lets start wearing green ribbons to show we care. It's time for Obama to step up, shed some fake crocodile tears on TV for the victims and use them as stage props to get his agenda through.


Disclaimer; This tornado was a true tragedy, and my heart goes out to the families involved, but lets compare how Obama and Co. handle the deceased children compared to if it was a crazed psycopath with a firearm. We've already had on moran Democrat blame the Republicans and global warming for this.

Cost vs Risk. Your child being killed by a tornado while at school is a very very low risk. The cost of putting tornado shelters in every school would cost the local taxpayers a fortune.
