In elementary, middle, and high school, I was in a school that had open classrooms. When I was in elementary and middle school I did not think of the open classrooms being a problem. I only thought the problem would be not being able to focus because I could hear the other classes. Then as I got to high school, I became more aware of what was happening in the world. There have been more school shootings now more than there ever has been. The open classrooms started to scare more people and made people think if a shooter was ever in the building then we would all be dead, because we do not have any protection. There were limited closed classrooms, and to get to those, we would have to pass hallways, and some classes it took longer to get there. Crossing an open hallway was a bigger risk, because if the shooter was in that hallway, then they would have an open shot for many kids and students. In the county I am from, there is a resource officer shortage, and there are only ten officers in the county, but there are 42 schools in the county. The resource officer that was at my school was in charge of the elementary, middle, and high school, and he was in charge of another elementary, middle, and high school that was 20 minutes away, and another elementary school that was also 20 minutes away.
