Flaw in Wake
In light of the recent school shooting in Connecticut, I would like to address what I perceive as a major flaw in the Wake County school security system.
I resigned my bus driver position on Oct. 9 with my final driving date of Oct. 23. No one ever asked for my ID badge, which has no expiration date and allows me free access to any school in the Wake County system.
On Nov. 30, I voluntarily turned in my badge and asked for a receipt to protect myself if it were lost. I could have entered any school unchallenged.
My question for people responsible for security is to consider: “How many ex-employees still have their badges allowing access to schools and what if they fell into the wrong hands?
