Better Security for EVERY School in Edison, NJ

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

There have been one too many school shootings in our country. I, along with many other parents, want to rip our children out of school just to protect them from harm. That's absurd to have to even think that, but it's logical, considering our current security that's in place. Every school needs a better approach at preventing this. Recently, in our state of New Jersey, East Brunswick and Nutley had threats and now they will have armed guards at EVERY school in their districts. This, along with many other things needs to happen to Edison's School District as well. Let's not wait for a threat to happen before we take the proper precautions! Every school should have armed guards, metal detectors, better mental health services(including when needed, mental health evaluations and resources to prevent a child wanting to do harm), a SERIOUS no bullying policy and many other things that will benefit the safety and security of our children. How can a child be asked to concentrate if their minds are constantly wondering if they may die at school today?! To me that is insane, that a child even has to think this, but it's true. How can a parent be confident in leaving their child in the care of school if we're always thinking, "what if we're next?!" The Board of Education posted on their Facebook today February 18th, that they'll be having a meeting on February 21st and at this meeting they'll be discussing ways to keep our children safe and trying to revamp our security policy. But they can't do it alone, they've asked for Mayor Lankey and The Edison Police Department's help with this. By signing this petition and going to the meeting(if possible), let's show them that we NEED these things ASAP. Please I'm begging you let's keep our children safe! 

Please sign this petition so we can get the attention of our Mayor and the necessary people in charge!
