The recent tragedy in Newtown, Conn., has understandably brought a renewed focus on the subject of security for our school children. That was seen just before the start of Christmas break for Seymour Community Schools, when reports of armed people launched lockdowns and worries for student safety.
The ongoing debate about cause and effect is even more relentless given these particular circumstances, but fears of such an inexplicable assault have spread throughout the country.
The tragedy is that such fears are not the only concern when it comes to ensuring the safety and well-being of our children.
