A 15-member commission investigating last year's school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has recommended arming teachers and increasing spending on mental health resources, according to a report released. The panel also said multiple security breaches and protocol issues within the school system and local law enforcement were partially to blame for the massacre.

The Broward County Public Schools security program didn't keep the shooter from entering the building, the report said, and there was no clear plan in place for locking down classrooms. As a result, the findings urge schools to adopt stronger emergency plans and lock doors when they're not being used, and that state law should be changed to allow properly trained teachers to carry guns.

"We can do more and we can do a better job of ensuring the safety of students and staff on K-12 school campuses," the report says. "Safety and security accountability is lacking in schools, and that accountability is paramount for effective change if we expect a different result in the future than what occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSDHS) on February 14, 2018."
