Violence continues as school security measures increase
from By Archita Datta Majumdar
Sadly, we live in an age where even the innocent are not spared from violence, and we see words like "lockdown" become an intrinsic part of the school lingo. The recent mass stabbing that injured 20 at a Pittsburgh-area high school is the latest example of this unfortunate trend. School officials and teachers are now trained to lock down the school at the slightest whiff of an emergency situation, and more and more schools across the country are preparing to invest millions of dollars to heighten their security measures. Recent bills in New Jersey and Delaware promise to lessen this gap between alertness and rescue.
