Seriously, they were trying to dumb it down for the kids. No "watch out Bert! The Soviet Union in going to Nuc us and blow everything up and you will die and stuff but don't worry, if you use a coat to pull over your head it will protect you from all the nuclear radiation."
Everyone knows that a schooldesk is better than a bomb shelter!
The ones closest to Ground Zero would be the lucky ones! They'd be turned into charcoal briquettes instantly regardless of whether or not they "ducked and covered". No slow, agonizing death from radiation poisoning...
