The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a Knowledge Community of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are a large and active group of over 10,000 architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities that promote lifelong learning in safe, welcoming and equitable environments. The CAE’s mission is to foster innovative and collaborative design of educational facilities and to heighten public awareness on the importance of learning environments.
In Texas, House Bill 3, passed 119-25 and now heads to the Senate. This legislation calls for significant investments to "beef up schools' safety", including hiring an armed security officer for each school, providing incentives for school employees to get certified to carry a weapon, and installing silent panic alert buttons in every classroom.
