Background checks on chaperones protect our students

April 24, 2013 

Recently there was an idea about requiring background checks for all chaperones of public school events and field trips. That is a truly great idea, especially in these times when there are so many dangerous people out there.

I also wondered why children should only be protected during public school events while the Boy Scouts of America are considering allowing homosexuals to be members and leaders. That concept just doesn't compute.

The moral decay in the United States is at a maddening pace and needs to be stopped before degenerates are running the place.

That's just my thought.
