Yikes, states are starting to mandate schools run monthly emergency drills or “shooter” drills, where the kids all hide in the classroom and the principal might pose as the shooter to make sure all the doors are locked. I can’t believe it’s come to this, but I guess Columbine wasn’t an isolated incident, given that lethal combo of mental illness/access to guns seems to happen more frequently nowadays.
It’s just a little sad…and creepy. I don’t have kids, but do you feel safe sending kids to school nowadays??? Am I not neurotic enough, world?
If you’re curious, here’s the NY Times article “In an Era of School Shootings, a New Drill “ by Tina Kelley in today’s paper.
