Written by a school teacher, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
After the schools tore those fences down, the curious eyes from outside on the roads made the students into the main character in The Truman Show; the salespeople no longer needed to pass through the front gates of the schools, to get logged in, they’d gone in and out as they pleased, in the teachers’ office; some of the students had even utilized the break between the classes to sneak out of the schools to get some snacks; a ton of good-for-nothing dropouts or gang members would walk straight in to the schools, to pick a fight with someone; a ton of people who used the excuses of “social movements” would show up at any time of day around the school. Those eyes from strangers, looking into the schools, made the teachers AND the students feel insecure, and now, they live inside the fences, with that strong lack of security.
Some say, that if a bad person had the intentions of making his way into the schools, no matter how high the fences, it wouldn’t keep the bad person out. But, this statement was only a half-truth, and yet, it’d exposed the students to dangerous situations.
The idea of the fences is that it’d barred the world outside, providing the students with a simpler environment to learn in, to reduce the risk of criminals entering into the schools. And this sort of simplified management is especially important for the elementary and middle school levels, and, those PSYCHOS that picked out those kids with no way of fighting back, isn’t it because how they lacked the ability to fight back? And, because there’s this unevenness, we must offer the middle and elementary schools, more protection.
Tearing down the fences, the strangers can come and go out of the schools as they pleased, and, heaven knows, when the next time the students’ lives would be in danger again.
And so, this person is FOR raising up the fences higher, but, raising up the fences higher still won’t solve the problem in the world, because if there are SO many PSYCHOS out there, and, even IF you’d erected those fences to the height of those SKY-SCRAPERS, there’s still NO guarantees, that those PSYCHOS won’t find their ways in, to hurt the kids.
