Metal Detectors Making Students Late, If Not Safer
from the rethinking-security dept
It’s been a growing trend for high schools to have students go through metal detectors before being able to enter the building. The NY Times takes a look at one school, in particular, and finds that about the only end results of this practice is that students are often late for class. Fighting still occurs. People still sneak stuff in. But, students now have to get to the school with a few hours to spare if they don’t want to be marked late for their first class. Seems like a very poorly thought out solution to the issue of safety in schools.
