Make school security invisible: Column
USA Today - 12/08/2014
A while back, I had a not-so-close encounter of the bizarre kind during a visit to a physician’s office in a relatively safe suburb of Boston. Upon entering, I was surprised and unnerved to find a receptionist seated behind a bulletproof glass plate that extended all the way up to the ceiling. With some difficulty, she and I conversed through a speaker system installed in the glass.
There must be a good reason for the high-level security, I thought. The receptionist might be protected, but what about me and all the other sitting ducks in the waiting area?
