In school shootings, limiting access is often key to safety
from Education Week
Another school shooting occurred, leaving educators, policymakers and parents grappling for lessons. Jacob Hall, a 6-year-old kindergarten pupil in Townville, S.C., is fighting for his life after a 14-year-old gunman allegedly opened fire from the school's playground, also wounding another student and a teacher. School safety and design experts say the most important steps schools can take are controlling access to classrooms, increasing visibility and ensuring that staff members are trained and prepared for possible intruders. The district said such measures prevented the attack from being worse.
