Teacher attacked, school district considers tighter security

On the first of the month, a teacher at Alderman Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina was attacked while trying to get some work done after hours.  The pre-Kindergarten teacher was in the school’s parking lot at around 7:45 P.M. when a man approached her with a gun, tied her up and locked her in a closet at the school.  The man also stole her credit cards and SUV.

Now, district officials are considering implementing tighter security measures at schools after working hours.  “It could have been any employee.  This person is just someone trying to do a good job and trying to do the right thing in terms of what they’re focusing on in the classroom,” said chief of staff for Guilford County Schools Nora Carr.
