What will school children here in Atlanta and North Georgia due on August 21 when there is an eclipse of the sun at 2:30 in the afternoon ? Will the children be released from school at the usual time? Or will they be held longer so that schools are not letting out and people trying to drive on the roads during the eclipse ? If your kids are at school during the elipse (either because that's their normal time to be in school or because they are being held extra long) will they be allowed to look at the sky during the eclipse ? Will they even be allowed to be outdoors, or near a window inside the school building ? Or will big brother insist that they take shelter in the hallways away from any exterior windows so that none of them could look skyward and possibly damage their eyes ? If you send your school kid to school with a pair of solar viewing glasses, which can be ordered online for three or four bucks a set, will your child be allowed to use those glasses on the afternoon of August 21 ? Or will your child be ordered to hold his head between his knees in the fetal position hiding under a desk to keep him "safe."
