School security and safety have always been important factors in the educational environment for our young children and teens. Especially for those who cannot afford the luxury of private schools and/or home-schooling, parents commonly have to accept whatever policies and techniques are enforced by the school district in managing security. Although schools will respond with heightened awareness after serious events such as Columbine and the Sandy Hook shootings occur, it's unfortunately a fact of life that complacence will set in over a period of time unless permanent, probably electronic, measures are taken.
