This article fascinates me as an educator for a couple of reasons. 1. The students wanted to solve a real world problem and 2. the students came up with a solution to a real world problem. Elegant not only in design but in the process of creating it... kudos to the students & teachers at Benjamin Bannerker Academic High School in D.C.

Educational Exercises Aimed At School Shootings, Drug Abuse Result In Terrorized Students And K-9 Attacks | Techdirt.com | USA | Scoop.it

In what seems to be a continuance of the questionable "scared straight" programs (questioned by no less that the DOJ), schools are involving kids in drills ostensibly aimed at educating them about how to react in extremely rare situations. Recently, we covered a so-called "drill" that involved a hijacked bus full of kids, which was "defused" in front of an audience comprised mainly of educators and people holding the local PD's purse strings. It was a rousing success, if your measurement standard starts at "everyone dies" and tops out at "no one was injured." This was portrayed as an essential bit of "anti-terrorism" training and an educational experience for bus drivers and students, but considering it all played out in front of town officials, the ultimate purpose seemed to be nothing more than a chance for the cops to play dress-up and get all duded up in some underused tactical gear.

Scott Greenfield covers another bit of "education" aimed at, well, who knows what exactly. The new concern is the "active shooter," and several schools are performing drills onsite in order to train staff (and children) how to react in case of school shooting.
