Funny how they include preschools, elementary education facilities and dormitories but leave out high schools and colleges. 406.12 is an example of the dumbest thinking I have ever seen. If we are so concerned about our little snowflakes just require all straight blade receptacles to be TR and be done with it! You never know when somebodies kid is going to crawl around a dentist's office or skating rink and stick a paper clip into a receptacle. Can't be too careful can we.:dunce:
