ABSTRACT

Lieberman says DHS and Department of Education Should Work to Prepare Schools for Terrorist Attacks   [open pdf - 45KB]

Governmental Affairs Committee Ranking Member Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., said Friday the Administration has failed to deliver emergency planning guidance to America's schools and he called on the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Education to take adequate steps to ensure that schools are prepared for terrorist attacks. Lieberman wrote that schools are also concerned that proposed cuts to the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Office of Community Oriented Policing (COPS) programs, which fund many school safety officers, will exacerbate the problem. DHS has teamed up with the Department of Education to provide an emergency planning website but NASRO officials contend that schools are largely unaware of this material.
