Guests: Avi Wolfman-Arent, Jen Kinney
In the wake every school shooting, parents are rightfully rattled and concerned about how to better protect their children. But the answer as to how schools can improve security is a murky one and has led to some controversial methods being proposed and implemented. Beefed-up surveillance tactics, armed guards, and even arming teachers and administrators are all ideas that have been put on the table in recent years. Today on the show, we’ll talk about how the mass shooting epidemic, and the reactions to it, are shaping schools in Pennsylvania. Joining us is WHYY reporter AVI WOLFMAN-ARENT, and freelance reporter, JEN KINNEY. But first, we’ll hear about the sudden resignation of Philadelphia’s Police Commissioner when we speak with WHYY’s RYAN BRIGGS.
