I completely agree with you in terms of dealing with mental illness. I too am a teacher (21 years now) and have seen my share of disfunctional parents raising children. I have also taught many children about whom the staff has commented how we won't be surprised to see his or her name in the paper that they committed some sort of crime later in life. I wonder what Monday will be like at school, if little ones will be afraid to attend even though we are so far removed geographically from where the actual tragedy occured. As well, the old saying "you can lead a horse to water..." holds true because we currently have a jr. kindergarten student who many of us are convinced has asperger's (autism) and his mother will not persue this. Instead she believes he is ADHD because that's a popular label to fall back on. This child needs help and already requires an ed. assistant to take him out of the room when he becomes extremely agitated. Regardless, my heart goes out to the families of all involved and hopefully schools can carry on in a "normal" fashion.
