WW: Shattered security – Surviving Red Lake teacher calls for change

Category: Glass,School SecurityLori @ 12:15 am Comments (4)

I’ve written several posts about glass used in schools, and many posts about traditional wired glass (refer to the Glass tab above).  A reader recently shared the video below and although it was recorded several years ago it includes very valid information for schools to consider when addressing security.  I can’t embed the video, so click the graphic to visit the news site.

    It appears you are using wordpress. To embed video into wordpress, check out the following link.

    Let me know if that works.

      Thanks Bill. I’ve embedded lots of videos in my posts, but this particular news site did not share the embed code so I could not embed it.

    There is nothing in the codes that prevent entity from doing better than the code by installing laminated glass.

    Should we be building fortress for schools?

    What about windows on the ground floor from the outside, should they be bullet proof or laminated glass to prevent an incident form that side?

    what about the walls between the hall and the classroom, should they be fortified so someone can not shoot through them at the students hiding on the other side, without even having to enter the classroom?

      I don’t think we should be building fortresses but I think there are some things we can do that won’t break the bank or create schools that look like prisons.
