Get the Point: Time has come to harden our schools

May 28, 2013

By David Hughes

The old “duck and cover” jingle still resounds in my head as well as remembering how we were expected to hunker under our desks and get into a little ball.
Later, we learned in the event of a tornado bearing down on our school we should rush to the hallway and assume the same position, but “hold onto the wall” and we would all be safe.
