SAFER & BETTER SCHOOL SECURITY
We live in a time of heightened security. There is some truth to the saying that “things aren’t as they used to be.” Not only do we need to improve educational outcomes, but we need to protect our classrooms: The classroom is a place of learning and we need to keep our kids and teachers safe, while preparing our pupils for the next generation.
We secure our courts, our airports, even our sports venues – we must secure our schools to ensure the safety of our children and our teachers. To do so, we must:
· Invest in school infrastructure to modernize schools and strengthen security, ensuring schools have single points of entry and advanced security measures.
· Invest in School Resource Offices (SROs), so that every school has a dedicated first responder who can take action to protect students and teachers in the event of emergencies.
