Spotlight on Safe School Design

Former Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick once said, “No child will be able to succeed academically if they don’t first feel safe in school. No teacher will be able to teach at their best if they aren’t confident there’s a plan in place to ensure their school is well prepared for an emergency.” Creating a safer educational institution begins with the facility’s design. Mariana Lavezzo, a K-12 Education designer with the DLR Group, recently talked with SP&M about this approach to creating safer schools.
