Brickbat: House Call


Following complaints from some parents, Ritenour, Missouri, school district Superintendent Chris Kilbride says he may reconsider the policy of sending armed police officers to the homes of students who are failing classes to discuss the reasons why they are failing. Kilbride says cops have conducted about 1,500 such visits since August 2020. Kilbride says the school system will form an advisory committee on the matter to get input from parents and students.
