New American Media reports that Chinese American parents from the east coast to the west fear school security is lax and want stronger safety measures taken. Some have even called on armed security guards on school grounds in the wake of the Newtown, CT shooting that left 20 school children dead.
Some parents on the west coast have even said they will keep their children out of school for the rest of the month for their safety.
“The tragedy is undoubtedly the worst nightmare for majority of parents and it is also a lifetime impact on children who survived but saw the scene,” said Ms. Cui, a mother of two girl, reported the Sing Tao newspaper.
