Thread Name: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
Subject: RE: BS: Death Trap Schoolrooms
My elementary school did have two doors on its rooms. In addition to their main doors, the lower grade (K-3) rooms had communicating doors to the adjoining classrooms and the upper grades (4-6) had back doors opening onto the athletic fields/recess area. The communicating doors were mainly to make it easy for one teacher to keep an eye on two classrooms in case her coworker had to step out for a moment. (This was in the days before teachers' aides.)
