Schumer Pushes School Security

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer says he'll be pushing for more federal funding to help schools afford better security measures.
U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer says he'll be pushing for more federal funding to help schools afford better security measures.

In past years, not as many federal dollars have been given to school systems, which Schumer says is a mistake. He says the money is vital to help ensure the security of students.

Schumer adds that many districts have to play a careful balancing act when figuring out how to pay for academic programs, sports and other activities.

"Let me be clear, I'm not telling schools how to keep our kids safe. I'm leaving that to the great administrators and law enforcement officers standing behind me, but I am saying that the federal government should share the costs."

Schumer made the announcement in Syracuse.
