School Safety Laws Not Being Followed in Michigan
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Are Michigan laws aimed at improving school safety being followed?
A published report says often, they’re not. The website “M-Live” reports that the laws, which require a certain number of fire drills and lockdown drills in K-12 schools, are routinely ignored.
M-Live conducted a two month investigation. The report says disaster drills are either not being done, or not done often enough. And records of the drills are either incomplete or haven’t been found.
In the meantime, officials are awaiting results of a school safety review recently ordered by the Governor, on the heels of the school massacre in Connecticut, in December.
