The story, “Schools, Not Prisons,” covers the unique safety challenges Hawaiʻi schools face, since local campuses are open and contain multiple buildings.

The story also features Puʻu Kukui Elementary School, a new school in Wailuku that was designed with safety in mind.

The story is part of a PBS NewsHour series, “The New Safe,” a collaboration between PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs and Student Television Network.
