  •  Sometimes a locked door (0+ / 0-)

    acknowledges other issues--not necessarily violence in the community. In our elementary school, there are a lot of custody issues where non custodial parents try to "take" their kids.  Our door is now locked and all visitors must be buzzed in by the office where they sign in.

      I would offer that Adam Lanza shot his way through a locked entrance and didn't have to worry about any armed guards. I further suggest that it never would have happened if there was a guard, because Lanza killed himself before any confrontation could occur. He seemed to prefer defenseless victims.

      Too much security is not what ails our schools.
      Union busting is the real enemy.

    •  Or simple classroom disruption (0+ / 0-)

      To lose 5-10 minutes because a parent walks into a classroom with Poopsie's forgotten lunch or jacket is a big deal.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
