This topic comes up in Kansas after a week of severe storm warnings and several tornado sightings in the area. When is it too dangerous for students to be out and about compared to the lack of opportunity that is taken away because of the weather? As an administrator the safety of students is one of the major components of the position, but at the same time I feel it's important to still provide opportunities. There is a line between taking those opportunities away and keeping a student or child safe. To me it would be an interesting topic to survey the parents in the community to find out where that level of safety v opportunity exists.

As an assistant principal a large portion of my daily job involves monitoring student behavior during passing periods, classroom observations, break times, etc. This focus on student behavior brings about the question of the comparison between the compliant/rebel behaviors. I would be curious to know the thoughts of other people and what the beliefs are about why some students choose to be compliant, while others choose to be defiant.
