Secure schools: But not that secure
Similar systems can be found around the area. All of these measures are good for keeping out people who want to slip in without being detected. But what about the person who is willing to shoot his way in?
That attitude is pervasive in public schools. The thinking is that it is better to risk this extremely rare occurrence than to take on the expense and the risk of having armed personnel in the building.
Is the distaste for guns so great that we will not even consider taking precautions that would prepare schools for the worst?
