School is a dangerous place. That is a tragic fact. Back in my day, school was a safe place.

We all gathered to learn and build a foundation as people. Now, no matter where you attend school, in a fancy schmancy neighborhood or in a more challenging area, no one is safe.

Horror, tragedy and violence has struck everywhere. And those who are there to witness it carry those scars all through life.

So how do we fix this issue? Or is it just a human error problem that is never going to get better? Why is education saddled with danger? If I was school age now, I'd definitely choose homeschooling.

Redditor u/Mariothemaster245 wanted to hear about legacies of schools. Who is still haunted and why? They asked:

Teachers really need hazard pay. They have proven to be essential workers and are severally underpaid.

In the last two decades being a teacher has gone beyond educating. Now teachers are therapists, triage workers and security guards.

Teachers are superheroes. Especially teachers of the youth. Those are the years children (students) can be particularly brutal.

So a big thank you to them. I have always wondered about the truths of a teacher, haven't y'all? Like, what do they really think about the school? Their colleagues? Their students?

Teachers must have an inside track or instinct when it comes to how a pupil will turn out. Or are they more surprised about the finished product later?

Redditor u/hogw33d was hoping teachers out there would have a chat with us by asking them to share:

Long-time elementary school teachers, which of your former students surprised you the most by their adult life outcomes or personality?
