Students at some Bronx schools claim long security lines remain a problem
Students at some Bronx schools say long security lines continue to hinder their education.
At Evander Childs High School, students say officials want them to get to school at 7 a.m. so they can wait on line and get to class on time. One student says he missed his first three classes three days in a row because of the long security lines.
Long lines at Evander Childs became an issue after the mayor implemented his citywide safety initiative in January. Under the initiative, more safety officers and police officers were placed in schools deemed to be the most dangerous. Seven of the 16 schools are in the Bronx, one of which is Evander Childs.
While some school lines have improved, students who attend schools where there is still a problem say they are not looking forward to the long lines in the winter.
