      This NY Times article is just devastating.

      https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2022/05/29/upshot/pandemic-school-counselors.html

      Account after account of these effects are everywhere.

      David Polansky had a pretty good summary of what seems to be happening.

      Wow, that last tweet is a jewel and frames the issue so succinctly that it will probably never see the light of day.   A teacher can be suspended and have their name publicly trashed for refusing to call a boy by girl pronouns, but a teacher who props open an automatically closing, locked door to an elementary school and that precipitates a horrific massacre probably won’t be named or disciplined.

      That contrast is striking.  And I’m only somewhat sympathetic to the plight of the second person, whose stupid actions cost the lives of a number of children (no, maybe not all, but some) in Uvalde. Yes, the consequences of their actions are probably “enough” punishment, but the way it’s trending we don’t yet see a call to compliance for all teachers to be responsible for campus safety. And, they should be…they are the adults in the room.
