Would a drop-down bar keep kids safe?

Would a drop-down bar keep kids safe?

Would it not be possible to equip each classroom with a drop-down bar that could be used in the event of a school invasion?

Placed at the bottom of the door, it would be impossible for someone to walk through the door of a classroom. The teacher would manually place it across the opening when an alarm is issued.

Sad that we should need such drastic measures to keep our children safe, but this seems to me a reasonable, inexpensive supplement to the other methods proposed.
