Jarods Law has gone too far!

For those of you who don't know, on December 19 2005, Bob Taft (Governor of Ohio) signed Jarod's Law. Jarod's Law was introduced after six year old Jarod Bennett was killed in school by a folding cafeteria table. Though this was a horrible tragedy, the event was preventable, there were two clearly visible warning labels on the surface of the table. Coincidentally, the tables have been around for 50 years and only 12 have died since. In summary the law is as follows: 1) The creation of a School Health and Safety network. 2. Annual inspections of every school in the state of Ohio by the Ohio State Board of health. 3. Published inspection reports of each school that can be viewed by the public. 4. Mandatory written plans and time frames for each item that does not meet the inspection rules. 5. Review of how the schools will fix all inspection problems. 6. Auditing of the School Health and Safety Network by the State of Ohio Auditorâ
