Dave Sherman, principal of South Park (IL) Elementary, sparked a lot of conversation at LeaderTalk with his post about school change and school safety. He has extended that discussion to his own blog, asking these key questions:

Are we just paranoid that something bad may happen in our schools because there have been a handful of school shootings in the last decade? Should we stop all this security talk? As I write this, I am preparing for our very first lock down drill with our students (see previous post). Is it all a waste of time?
