Parents in San Antonio are worried about the safety of their children in public schools after a spate of false threats and real guns.

Last month an email threatened mass killings at an elementary school. The result was lots of absences, as parents kept kids home, and huge losses in revenues for schools, who are paid per attendance.

Are our public schools safe? What is the threshold of a credible threat?
