Different visions dominate school safety debate
from By: Michelle R. Matisons (commentary)
The school safety debate picked up steam almost one year ago on Valentine's Day 2018. That day, a former student walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, school and fired on students and staff, killing 17 and injuring 17 more. This debate is ongoing and presents many possible solutions from diverse sectors. A recently released 400-page report details that many factors blended together to result in such a tragic outcome. Controversially, this report recommends that teachers and staff use Florida's Guardian Program, allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons to protect students in the event of a mass shooting or similar threat.
