Newtown teachers want big and small security fixes

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The president of the Newtown Federation of Teachers says some of his union members are still frightened after the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and want to make sure both large and small steps are taken to better secure their schools.

Thomas Kuroski said some of the issues may seem small, such as making sure classroom doors can be locked from the inside. But he said after what his 435 teachers have experienced, such issues become large.

Kuroski appeared Friday at a public hearing held by a legislative working group reviewing school safety following the Dec. 14 shooting, which left 20 first graders and six educators dead.

Kuroski said Newtown teachers are experiencing ``a wide range of emotions'' and that there's a sense of sadness throughout the district.
