Security lax in Philly schools

In response to the latest spate of school violence, reporters at The Philadelphia Inquirer decided to investigate the safey of local schools only to find that it lax. "In spite of rules aimed at limiting public access, reporters who fanned out on a single day walked into more than a dozen schools unannounced and without being challenged." Without state or federal regulations on school safety, decisions are left up to individual districts. As a result, safety policies vary widely leaving many schools vulnerable.
