Article Title: Can Security Measures Really Stop School Shootings?


Article Summary

The article titled ‘Can Security Measures Really Stop School Shootings?’ the author makes the point that an educational approach would work better than “target hardening”.

He explains that the “target-hardening” approach to school shootings attempts to fortify schools against gun violence through increased security measures. These measures may include metal detectors, lock-down policies, “run, hide, fight” training and surveillance cameras.such security measures decrease the likelihood of school shootings.

This approach is wrong as gun-wielding teachers tells students that schools are scary, dangerous and violent places – places where violence is expected to occur.

By analysing the various aspects of school life, the author concludes that it is time to think about school shootings not as a problem of security, but also as a problem of education.Thefundamental question of why so many mass shootings take place in schools needs to be answered.
