Active-shooter drills are tragically misguided
from The Atlantic
At 10:21 a.m. on Dec. 6, 2018, Lake Brantley High School, in Florida, initiated a "code red" lockdown. "This is not a drill," a voice announced over the PA system. At the same moment, teachers received a text message warning of an active shooter on campus. Fearful students took shelter in classrooms. Many sobbed hysterically, others vomited or fainted, and some sent farewell notes to parents. A later announcement prompted a stampede in the cafeteria, as students fled the building and jumped over fences to escape. Parents flooded 911 with frantic calls.
