Have you ever thought about volunteering at a public school? If you were required to pass a criminal background check first, would that encourage or discourage you?
Adults across the country are now asked to supply a background report before they’re allowed to volunteer at local schools. It wasn’t always this way. Years ago most people who volunteered were welcomed in without many questions asked. Times were simpler and safer back then. Today we live in a world where stories about sex offenders and pedophiles are common, and it’s hard to know whom to trust.
