School Safety: Culture Over Hardware

Safety and emergency management are important areas for all schools.  There are lots of marketing efforts put into selling hardware and other solutions to education leaders.

While door locking mechanisms, bullet-resistant windows, lockdown blinds, and related hard-security items can be helpful the financial, labor, organizational, political, administrative, and community cost needed for this type of security may not be worth the benefit it might provide. 

Institutional and system leaders should prioritize school safety culture.
