    She was only 42 years old, and leaves a family.

    I hate to capitalize on the suffering of her loved ones, but can I hear less about "useless government workers" today, please?

    What a horrific story. I wonder what killed her...could she have had heart damage from the attack and not known?

    Gosh I don't know...could be a blood clot, internal bleeding, brain trauma and I'm sure there are other possibilities.

    I get a kick out of people who think people in human services do it for the money. Child welfare workers make about $1000 more a month than me and have to work on call as well. It's not a of dough. Better than many jobs out there, but so heartbreaking, and dangerous a.s well

    The NJ DYFS will not longer allow social workers to visit certain homes alone. Teachers, on the other hand, can be ordered to provide home instruction for students who are too dangerous to be in the classroom.

    This is crimes against teachers committed in the school, chanel. I couldn't find more recent data than 2003...I assume it has gotten worse in the past 8 years.

    We put teachers into situations a trained prison guard wouldn't try to handle alone.
