Professor NMSU’s Research Findings on School Safety Policies

Job :


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) In a study co-authored by Professor Jagdish Khubchandani of New Mexico State University, she shows the results of gun prevention practices in schools.

Khubchandani describes school shootings as a disease that none of the prescribed prescriptions have prevented or minimized.

“None of the enforcement activities that we have now, police, security cameras, have been able to minimize the damage or actually prevent a shooting, so the idea is that we have this unique American endemic disease shootings and we are looking for a prescription whatever we prescribe has not been able to minimize the disease,” Khubchandani said.

His research explains that a lot of money has been invested in school safety, but it hasn’t worked.

“Why are we prescribing this kind of drugs (school safety) that consumes billions of dollars, creating an emotional reaction in students who are scared watching all these procedures and policies,” Khubchandani said.
