Many schools subscribe to the open door policy. While this is great in a society where children are not kidnapped or sometimes removed from school against their will, this is no longer a practical option. School shootings and violence are now prevalent in many schools all over the world. Schools where shootings are a regular occurrence as sadly they are in the US, access at various entrances should be controlled. Back doors in many schools are now locked and only opened from the inside.
