      cipher. That part is easy, what is hard is to teach children right and wrong, how to get along with others, and be good citizens. Teachers have to deal with conflicting information when it comes to teaching these values, reading and ciphering offers no conflictiing inforamtion.  Try telling children there are better ways to settle your differences when they come to school every day seeing armed guards. Better we should limit the amount of guns and protect our kids that way, then we are not just protecting their little bodies, but their little minds as well.
