The State of School Security!

Memphis Mayor Willie W. Herenton will set policy and order metal detectors for every middle and high school in the Memphis City School System. This is in response to several school shootings, and school fights in the matter of a week’s time. It is time out for violence in the schools! We have posted a link to Mayor Herenton’s timely presss conference! We also posted several clips that address the need for different policies in our schools systems.

Mayor Herenton stated that Memphis is not alone, in regards to cities dealing with violence in their respective school systems. I think that this press conference addresses many problems that we have with violence in our different school systems. Kudos to the Memphis Mayor for taking a bold stance that many others need to take!
