Salina Christian Academy1

I m not able to evaluate instruction at this school, but I can speak to the psychological atmosphere. This school is located in what was a public elementary school I attended years ago. During a reunion of my high school graduating class, I was visiting the neighborhood where I grew up, and taking a few pictures. I wouldn't photograph a home without asking, but didn't think taking photos of a school could offend. I walked onto the school grounds, camera in hand. An employee of the school hurried out and asked what I was doing. She seemed a bit hostile, but I explained, and asked permission to take a few photos. She was skeptical, and said I should ask the head of the school. In the office, I was again asked to explain myself. I was asked for ID, and whether I was taking photos for any "organization." Eventually I was given permission. At no time during my visit did I see anyone smile, nor did I hear sounds of children, yet it was late morning on a Fall weekday. I can say with certainty that Salina is not a place where Christians are persecuted; quite the opposite. What explains the paranoia at this school ? I'd ask a lot of questions before sending my child here.
