Unlike the officer in Parkland, Florida who stood behind a post while Nicolas Cruz fired shots inside the school, we would have a officer trained to handle an emergency like this. I think that schools should realize that people are dangerous and always will be, we need to take safety measures to make sure that nothing like what happened in Florida, happens at our

Also there should be forms or something to notify the parents that there are trained people with arms inside the school for protection.

Random drug testing was first used by the United States military to help stop the heroin epidemic during the Vietnam War. Many public schools have been struggling with the problem of their students abusing drugs. Many schools are struggling to find a solution to the problem as well. Random drug testing is a practice that should be implemented in all public schools. Randomly testing students who are involved in extracurricular activities, would allow teachers and other adults to help lead students in the right direction and help them put an end to their addiction.
Schools have been evaluated by different organizations on whether or not they should be involved in off-campus cyberbullying. Some believe that they can be involved in off-campus to stop suicide or emotional distress and to stop them from putting the victim through lots of pain. Others believe that schools shouldn’t intervene in cyberbullying outside of schools because it affects their right to the first amendment which is “The freedom of speech”. Cyberbullying should be taken into the hands of the school if it happens off-campus because if nothing happens then it can get a child hurt or even killed. Students who are targeted by cyberbullies have no way to escape from the attackers brutality, who can drive the victim to suicide or self harm.
Gun Control: Firearms Illegal in Texas Elementary Schools Today in America, the government is slowly providing laws and policies that reflect a safe society for its citizens to live comfortably. On the other hand, the laws in specific states, are less-limiting by not restricting specific criminal acts.

A Risk or a Benefit? In the recent past, learning institutions have increasingly become crime scenes with dozens of students and professors killed and others wounded. This has sparked debate on whether concealed guns should be allowed within colleges or not. The existing laws prohibits anyone from carrying a gun in and around school premises, but the proponents of the matter are calling for the legalization of concealed guns in schools as the first step in keeping learning institutions safe.
As a news reporter for education, Kohli (2016) states that it is significant that reaching out trauma counseling early before students are seriously affected by PTSD or depression. She projects her value that a school should have an on-site social worker to provide psychological support, and to address the need of mental resources for students. However, this depends on school budgets and priorities. I think Kohli (2016) makes a strong point that schools should provide mental support regularly week by week or day by day, but not just after large-scale traumas such as shootings. It is true that the need for trauma counseling has been recognized in the United States after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown.
