Arming teachers to keep kids safe

  • All week we're taking a closer look at security in our schools
  • Michael Dorn of Safe Havens International shares some new tools teachers are using

After tragedies like the one that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, it's only natural for parents to hesitate when it's time to drop their kids off at school. We shutter to think this could happened in our town, at our school, to our kids. But we have to send our kids to school. These horrible events can create questions and confusion for anyone, especially parents. So we're taking a closer look at security in our schools, and what can be done to keep our kids safe.

Michael Dorn is the executive director of Safe Havens International, a non-profit campus safety center that's committed to helping schools and school systems improve crisis preparedness and campus safety. Michael stopped by Making it in America to share what schools can to do keep kids safe.

Security in our schools is a theme we're focusing on all week on Making it in America. Today, we'll talk to a father who lost his daughter in a school shooting. He started The "I Love U Guys" Foundation and developed a program called The Standard Response Protocol, which is now used to train students and school staff. He's here with his remarkable story at 4 p.m. ET on Making it in America.
