HOW TO PROTECT CHILDREN AT SCHOOL Not by arming teachers and principals who have the job of teaching children and not patrolling schools. Teachers and principals cannot be at entrances of school but trained armed guard at the entrance and a back up guard in case a shooter gets past the first guard which should always be at the entrance. The school should be a fortress and classrooms doors that cannot be penetrated by intruders like in airplane cockpits. But doors should be easy access for children to exit. Airports and courtrooms are protected against shooters but not our schools?? No one, even a parent, should get passed and school entrance without identifying themselves and go through a metal detector. Children has to be protected against other children as well. There have been incidents where elementary school children have bought firearms to school. I live in a senior complex that has more security than our schools. Anyone passing the front door as to identify themselves and sign in and name the person they are visiting.
