I am a teacher at a charter school in Riviera Beach. In light of the tragic events in Connecticut, my first response, and the overwhelming wish of my students, was to lock the classroom door to “keep the bad guys out.” Ironically, the Palm Beach County School Board requires that classroom doors lock only on the outside. We are not permitted to lock doors from the inside. In light of recent events and the indiscriminate violence directed toward schoolchildren, it is time to change the rules. Let us lock the doors!
