The cylinder on the classroom side of the door does not prevent egress; it controls the outside lever and is typically keyed so that all of the inside cylinders on classroom doors are operated by the same key or by any key in the school’s key system ("maison keying"). Classroom security locks are not restricted to classrooms and can be used in any location where key control of the outside lever is required from the inside of the room.  (Doors and Hardware, May 2015, Lori Green)
