Texas AG Paxton: Schools Should Adopt Israeli School Security Model

May 24, 2018 - 12:47 pm

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says Texas schools should adopt an Israeli school security model.

In the wake of the recent school shooting massacre in Santa Fe that left 10 people dead, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton believes that Texas schools should use the same safety methods that are used in Isreal.

The Israeli security method includes armed guards, metal detectors and fewer doors.

In an interview with KRLD news, Paxton says the plan has been successful in Israel since it started in the mid 70's. He says there is a cost, but it can be funded.

Paxton says arming teachers is a last line of defense, but one that can help get students to safety if there is a school shooting.
