Parkland Parents Say ‘Yes’ to Making Schools Safer, ‘No’ to Armed Teachers

One of her children was in Westglades Middle School, separated from Stoneman Douglas by a football field, when the shooting happened. She says the school was on lockdown while they searched for the gunman. She wants to see reform beside armed teachers.
