Manchester superintendent Thomas Brennan talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.

In the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, it’s only natural for New Hampshire residents to ask if our schools are safe.

State and local officials say they have made the right moves over the years to keep students and staff safe – but they say school safety is not a simple task.

That’s certainly true in Manchester, where Thomas Brennan serves as superintendent of schools. He joins All Things Considered host Brady Carlson to share some of his experiences with school safety.
