SATURDAY COLUMN
September 18, 1999
More and more, it appears gun control is likely to be an issue in the upcoming presidential election. Tragic and deadly shootings at Colorado’s Columbine High School, at an office complex in Atlanta, at a Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles and, on Wednesday, inside a Fort Worth, Tex., Baptist church are sure to add fuel to the debate on how best to deal with the gun situation. In such a climate, there are bound to be many nice-sounding, crowd-pleasing promises by candidates about the gun situation. Unfortunately, too many office-seekers will say what they think voters want to hear rather than what is in the best interests of all citizens.

IS IT LEGAL AND/OR ETHICAL FOR THE LPS TO ASK STUDENTS TO
September 18, 1999
Is it legal and/or ethical for the Lawrence public schools to ask students to bring teachers supplies like dry erase markers and tissue for extra credit? If it is legal and/or ethical, isn’t it discriminatory to low-income students? Julie Boyle with the school district stated that the schools provide supply lists to parents so that students will have the necessary items relevant to basic academic tasks. Students are asked to bring tissue for obvious health reasons. Supplies are provided for families of limited means and confidentiality is maintained. The district appreciates all of the community organizations and business who generously provide school supplies for families in need. The district does not condone the activity described as “bringing supplies for extra credit.”
