Terrorism Warning For Schools

Not quite sure what to think of this. Eduwonk has never second-guessed the terror warnings before because of politics, and there seems to be some evidence supporting the warning for schools. Yet the timing is curious. Why wait until now? Boardbuzz wonders about that, too, and has a good rundown and some useful links.

The politics clearly benefit Bush. The horror at the school in Beslan did have an impact here among soccer moms, security moms, office park spouses, or whatever you want to call them. The President mentioned it in last week’s debate and will likely do the same tonight because it reminds these voters about security and does so in a very personal way.

Josh Marshall second-guesses here. Joanne Jacobs reports here. Let’s fervently hope this does remain an academic debate.
