It depends on who does the stabbing -- parents are more likely to be upset that you don't share their belief that little Johnny isn't the next Einstein. Seriously, helicopter parents are the worst.
And you get paid a decent wage for difficult work like finger painting and playing in the sand pit? I guess there's also the additional benefit of having a lower chance of being stabbed compared with a secondary school.
