Stuffed in a Locker: A Case Study Involving Guns on Campus
Lampron, Phillip Andrew
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v20 n3 p26-36 Sep 2017
Ensuring that children are safe is imperative for any educational institution. This case presents a realistic scenario of the safety concerns of leaders and staff in a middle school concerned with potential gang activity. Inspired by actual events, this case illustrates burdens that many middle school leaders across the nation face on a daily basis--weapons on campus. Potential legal issues surrounding this case study are prosecution of the students involved, student access to weapons, lack of oversight on the part of parents, and proper notification of parents of students who were potential victims. This case study could be used in educational leadership courses that focus on educational law and supervision.
