Educators learn how to help students survive a mas shooting

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Local educators met in Michigan City to learn about a new program aimed to help students survive a mass shooting.

It is called "The ALICE Approach" which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Escape.

Traditionally, teachers have taught students to huddle together or line up against a wall. But officials say that is exactly what a shooter wants you to do.

"We feel that there's better options out there, instead of just being a sitting duck in that room," said Mike Clark, Galveston Police Department. "Realize, he is not there to negotiate with you. He's there to take lives."

There is some controversy surrounding the ALICE program. Teachers are also encouraged  to cause a disruption which may allow them to fight back.
