Look for More School Shootings, Possible Fixes

The inevitable "copycat effect" ensures that we will see more school shootings -- and the nature of those attacks are evolving.

Rural schools as well as urban schools will need to reevaluate their security procedures and design. Possible measures to be taken by schools include strict access control, locking of all external entrances, the ability to lock all internal classroom doors, installation of individual phones in classrooms, addition of armed security staff.

Rural classrooms have a tougher go here because they are more removed from law enforcement and EMS resources with longer response times.
