If you heard shots fired in class, would you know what to do?
Unfortunately for most students, the answer is “no.”
Most of us have spent all our school years under the shadow of shootings. From Columbine to Sandy Hook, it’s something that has always been on our minds.
And still, most students are unaware of what to do or how to handle a school shooting. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has taken some steps to educate students about shootings and to keep them safe, but more needs to be done.
