No to Surprise School Shooting Drills. Involve Parents and Students.

    1. Petition by

      Friends of Horan

From Horan School in Harlem (http://chn.ge/TgjLDj) to Ortiz School in Santa Fe, an alarming trend is emerging in the aftermath of the Newtown school shooting. School Principals and administrations across US schools are ignoring important issues like school safety, coordination with law enforcement, the mental health of their students, and the rights of parents in favor of executing their own lockdown drills. We should prepare our schools for security while acting with care so we don't needlessly traumatize students and their families with surprise drills. We should coordinate with teachers, trained professionals, mental health experts, and law enforcement. The first drill cannot be a surprise drill. First drills should be informative and should discuss the possibility of surprise drills and give everyone involved the right tools and knowledge to be safe. We should take extra care for schools that have kids with disabilities. Don't take the community out of community safety. Our kids deserve more.

      2 schools days after the Sandy Hook school massacre, the admin of a Harlem school abused 300 kids with disabilities with a surprise school shooting drill. In the following weeks, they worked to cover it up from parents and the press. Because of the coverup and the kids being unable to communicate this, 9 weeks later, the parents still don't know. And the kids still don't have the required PTSD care. I hate that it's now becoming a trend in America to terrify our children for no good reason, and to deny their parents their right to agree to such an exercise. http://horanwatch.org
