Description

A team of 14 reporters "tested security at 37 local schools by walking into unlocked elementary, middle and high school and moving through the halls until stopped by a school employee or student." The reporters were able to walk around without beinmg confronted for 10 minutes or more. In one of every four schools, the reporters were never challenged. Some schools did have their gates locked, and reporters were confronted at the gate.
