    How unsettling and how depressing this story is! When I was in school, the worst things teachers had to deal with were gum chewing, spitwad throwing, cheating on tests and running in the halls.

    Active shooter drills for pre-school teachers a new normal for schools
    CBS News, May 29 2018 6:38 PM

    Santa Fe was just one of more than 20 school shootings so far this year. With no end in sight to the threat, more and more schools are requiring teachers to get special training to protect their students. It can be shockingly realistic. Even though it includes a fake gun, the drills can still feel real. Former deputy sheriff Eric Frost runs a company that conducts safety trainings for mass shootings and he says he's busier than ever.

    Every month, at Casa De Niños Pre-School in Yuma, Arizona, after the students go home, the teachers go through active shooter drills. But this is a pre-school with kids as young as one. The training is required by Sabrina Seale, the pre-school's owner. Each drill costs the school $1,000. Two-thirds of school districts across the country conduct active shooter drills. Since 1999, 16% of school shootings took place where preschoolers and kindergartners were present.

    Metal detectors, armed guards and panic buttons in every classroom are good ideas but instead of responding to school shootings this way, we should be trying to prevent school shootings by banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammo magazines and doing a much better job of diagnosing and treating mental illness.
