									                    The Pros and Cons of School Fencing

There are many different opinions concerning school fencing and the materials that this
item should be constructed of. Many taxpayers feel that school fencing is in violation of
their rights as taxpaying citizens. Many people feel that without the presence of school
fencing the children that attend the classes on that campus are vulnerable to pedophiles
and other people that would harm them. There are really good points on both sides of this
argument.

School Fencing Pros:

1. School fencing will provide a distinguishing barrier between the areas the children play
different games at. It can establish a field for football, baseball, and hockey. It stops the
balls from the sporting activity from inadvertently hitting targets they should not have hit,
like cars in the parking lot.

2. School fencing reduces the number of acts of vandalism the property is subjected to
each year. It also reduces the number of times that thieves break in and steal computer
equipment, and things of this nature.

3. A fenced in enclosure provides additional security for the children that attend the
classes and provides peace of mind to the parents of those children.

4. Reduces the cost of the liability insurance coverage the school district is forced to
carry.

5. Protects the children from being lost, kidnapped, or exposed to people they are better
off not being exposed to.

School Fencing Cons:

1. Taxpayers have a right to public property that they pay taxes on

2. Increases the duties of the maintenance staff

3. Increases the duties of the grounds keeping personnel

4. Takes taxpayer dollars to pay for the materials to build these enclosures

5. If not properly maintained the fencing can become dangerous to the children on
campus

The biggest point that the people who are against school fencing make is that they are
paying for the property and they should have access to it. The fencing material will not
prevent you from going to the property and from going on the property. It will cause you
to have to check in with some member of the faculty before you go onto the property.
The best point that the people who are against the fencing make is that the materials to
construct this enclosure will cost money. They are absolutely right about that. The trouble
is that the enclosure provides security to our communities children. There is no way to
place a price tag on the safety of a child.

The best point that the people for these enclosures make is that they provide the security
to the children and they help the faculty to keep an eye on these children. This includes
keeping the children in one place when they are playing their different types of ball. It
also keeps the ball from causing damages to other peoples' property.

It is a fact that we do pay taxes that provide the funding for the public school buildings
and properties. It is also a fact that the world we live in has become more dangerous to
our young people. The rest of the decision is strictly up o you.
