And he was directly responsible for preventing more casualties, having someone outside the lunchroom firing shots into the building through broken windows trying to take out the taller one certainly put a kink in their operation.

If your request goes nowhere, have an attorney write the request. Then see if you need to escalate it further.
The sad part is sometimes the squeeky wheel just gets replaced. ZG- make sure you are taking care of your self and don't put yourself in a bad spot. I think at this point in time it might be good to have a voice but if it is such a minority it might looks like you are the crazy one. Talk with other teachers and form your thoughts.

My District is definitely the "replace the wheel" type. It's a very prestigious District and they don't like problems.

The big problem with schools is the design. When I think back to most of my schools, there is only one way in and out of the classrooms. And all the exits open to hallways that put everyone in the same spot. You are just trapped.

I saw it too. For once Graham actually stood firm for something he believes in. Wayne La Pierre was also on that show. Gregory tried like crazy to get him to back down, but La Pierre gave not an inch of ground and made David Gregory look like a helpless child, "Yes but, yes but, yes but..."
I was impressed by the way La Pierre avoided name-calling, and avoided issues that would have made us all look like a bunch of "conspiracy theorists". As far as I'm concerned, La Pierre won the debate.

Not true ... every last classroom in any school across the country has emergency exit windows. The shcool system I went through, built in the 60's and 70's had 2 doors in most of the rooms and every 2nd floor room exit window opened up to a roof top.

It's simple enough to design and construct a building with the ideas of safety and egress in mind. It's just as simple to design and build with the ideas of protection and keeping someone out as well

I just had a cynical, silly "epiphany". How 'bout arming all the kids? A room full of armed kindergarteners would make the perp look like a piece of swiss cheese.
Seriously, though, if the legislators would just quit trying to use events like these as an excuse to infringe deeper and deeper into the rights of the public they are sworn to serve, we the people would devise our own ways to secure our schools, shopping centers, and businesses. People did pretty well taking care of themselves and each other for the first 150 years of the United States.

So a small child is dropped one at a time about five feet to the ground out a window by a teacher that can't even pick them up ???????

Or 15 feet, or 30 feet out a 2nd or 3rd story window.
