What can be done to enhance the security and safety of our schools for our students/children?

Perhaps one of the places in a society where we all place our children, our schools, is the LEAST defended against from an emergency situation such as the emergence of an active shooter.

I graduated from Stoneman Douglas high school in 2014, where four years later would be the site of one of the most horrific pr tragic school shootings in US history.

I remember the doors to many of my classrooms NOT being locked.

Also, the main gate or entrance not being locked, as well as there not being a significant perimeter around the school.

Anyone and their grandmother can literally waltz on through to the school, choose any of the numerous classrooms to go into and have a very high likelihood of getting into these classrooms to do whatever they wish to the students or teachers.

•Why aren’t there better trained and armed security guards?

•Why aren’t doors locked?

•Why isn’t there an actual perimeter around the school to prevent unauthorized entry? There’s already a gate, why not lock it and why not enclose the rest of the school? Makes no sense.

•Why not put impact-proof glass for all glass/windows throughout the school?

•Why not give teachers the option of getting trained in self defense, firearms, emergency management, etc.

Why do we put our children in such unsafe and open places?

You have all of a society’s children in one campus.

Why wouldn’t it be properly secured?
