The mantra of They're Our Kids is that it takes a Village to raise OUR KIDS. Today in Danville, it took a Village to locate one of OUR KIDS.
At Danville South Elementary School, a 10-year-old boy refused to go to class and left the building and the school property. A community-wide search ensued, involving school officials and multiple public safety agencies. The result of the search was the best possible outcome: the boy was located safe and unharmed a few blocks away from the school.
An incident such as this one begs the question, "How can kids just walk out of school?"
From the perspective of a substitute teacher, the answer is simple: they just walk out the door.
