Most educators say they feel safe at work

A survey of nearly 11,000 educators revealed a consensus of opinion about guns and school safety. According to research by the School Improvement Network, 91.6 percent of the teachers said they feel safe at their workplace, and nearly 95 percent said they believe students feel safe.

However, only about 70 percent of the respondents said they consider their school safe from gun violence. About the same percentage reported that their schools have increased security since the Sandy Hook (CT) shootings. A third of the schools are locking more doors, while just 10 percent have increased a police presence on their campus.

While 72 percent said they would not bring a firearm to school if it was allowed, 88 percent say an armed guard on the premises would improve safety.

“Although the reaction to the Sandy Hook shooting and other instances of school violence have been explosive publicly, the most common new safety measure being adopted is locking doors or keeping fewer open during the school day,” the report notes.
