Schools Are Not Safe Essay

  • Security guards and cameras aren't enough anymore

    In the past recent months and years 3/1/2018 there have been the Florida shootings and a whole hell of a lot of bomb threats.My school district (Jeffco, Colorado) We have gotten 17 bomb threats in the past 3 months. And in my own school (I won't name) Authorities have seized many rifles and handguns in the past 5 years. It is time to stop holding on the glory days of the past when merely locking a door in a school building would suffice for proper protection. We need to start acting and acting now to prevent school shooting by being prepared and knowing what to do in times if that god-forsaken time arrives, at your own, or your childrens own school.

  • No they are not safe

    In the recent few days (02/21/18) I have not been feeling safe at school anymore. It it because we recently had threats of a school shooting, the neighboring school as well had threats. Then the two school shootings down in the Florida has also happen. Then, a few more schools are having shooting or bomb threats, I just don't believe that schools are the safest place anymore.

  • School SHOULD be safe, but it's the opposite.

    School should be a place where you go to learn and nobody should be worried about being shot while learning Algebra. Most of the Yes' are outdated and with the recent Florida shooting and the middle school lock down, no school is safe and gun rights don't do anything. It will keep getting worse and worse, just don't go to school.

  • Not safe anymore

    Our school has a cop but we have already have someone bring a gun to school and we have also had a bomb threat. Schools are not safe anymore because of gang conflicts, they sometimes boil over in school, creating an unsafe area to learn. I just don't feel safe anymore.

  • Wait a minute.....Safe despite death... What?!

    Those of you who say schools are safe despite recent killings, I have a question. What makes school safe? Use your brain. If someone is killed, it obviously isn't safe. Stupidity. You are the problem with this country. Good isn't evil and evil isn't good, no matter what the authorities or news sources may say. Don't get it twisted, yall.

  • Schools will never be safe

    I do not believe that schools are safe because there is no way for teachers to help us kids be safe. To make schools safe we need school cops for every school in the district. So no schools aren't safe. And because in storms someone will get hurt no matter what happens! Also schools may look safe on the outside but in dangerous happenings, something will go wrong.

  • No, kids are not safe anywhere anymore

    No, I do not believe kids are safe in school anymore. I don't think there is any place that is really safe anymore. Life has changed and not necessarily for the better. Families have a lot of stress just trying to make ends meet. There are a lot of emotional issues today that we didn't see twenty years ago.

  • But what if you’re writing a “Why us” statement for a school that isn’t your top choice? How do you get excited about that school? How do you fake it?

    Tip #1: Don't fake it.

    What do I mean? If a school is on your list and you're not excited about it, why is it on your list? Take it off. Or, better yet: 

    Do your research and get excited about the school. Chances are, you may not be excited about a school because you don't know much about it yet. Try this: think of a school you're not excited about applying to but probably will, and write down on a piece of paper everything you know about it. (Not a ton, eh?) See, here's something you may not have been told. 

    Finding a school that “fits” you is an active process, not a passive one. That’s one reason I appreciate and am an advocate for the “Why us” essay--you get to (read: have to) research and find out if the school you’re pledging your allegiance to is actually one that you want to pledge your allegiance to. So get researching! (For research resources go here.)
