A high school student in NC put "hand cleanser" (I interpreted this as "hand sanitizer," but I'm not sure) in his teacher's soft drink. She became ill and was taken to a nearby hospital where she received treatment. The student was arrested, and the school has yet to determine what his punishment will be from the school standpoint. http://www.newsobserver.com/2011/04/08/1115662/police-school-seek-cause-of-raleigh.html What do you all think of this? Are schools a dangerous place, or are schools generally safe with the occasional senseless action on the part of a single thoughtless person? Do YOU take any precautions as a teacher to protect yourself at school? This story was interesting to me since I'm looking for a high school teaching job for next year. This story doesn't deter me from continuing to search for a job, but it does get me thinking about workplace safety. Thoughts?
