Mary Curtis – What NC Schools are Doing to Protect Students
The Latest School Shooting, and How Carolinas Might Keep Students Safe
CHARLOTTE, NC– Another day, and unfortunately, another school shooting, this time in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. The circumstances change, but the tragedies continue. In Wake County this week, three schools were put on lockdown after threats. And a UNCC student was arrested for making threats.
And all this is before the March 24 “March for Our Lives,” scheduled in Washington, DC., to rally for gun control and school safety measures, and organized in spirit and action by students in Parkland, Fla., after a shooting at their high school killed 17 last month.
Other marches will be happening across the country and around the world.
So, what are North Carolina schools doing? Are they taking cues from actions in other states? (Mary C. Curtis)
