Should schools be outfitted with bulletproof whiteboards?

  • Protection is a starting point for defense

    Improve your proctection for getting away from attack. Possible to rush attacker and stop/delay so others can get to safety, or maybe cops would show up.
    At best a delaying tactic, better than under a desk waiting to be killed.
    I will be getting one for wife and daughter to use if needed. Both have carry permits and are excellent shots.

  • No there is no need to spend the money to outfit school with bullet proof white boards.

    The decision by a Minnesota school board to purchase 200 bullet proof white boards (at an estimated cost of $60,000) does nothing to improve the safety or security. The size of the boards (18" x 20") limits their effectiveness as a tool to protect a large number of students from an armed gunman. The funds uses to purchase these boards would be better expended on improving building security.

  • No, that is way too extreme

    I think it is extreme to have bulletproof whiteboards. First of all, what if the children happen to be at recess? They are not going to take them outside. We should not be teaching our children to live in fear, that is not what American society has been about or will be about in the future.

  • No schools do not need to be outfitted with bulletproof whiteboard.

    No schools do not need to be outfitted with the bulletproof whiteboards, or any other bulletproof instructional materials! Our schools are not war zones where the risk of being shot are a major issue. The cost of bulletproofed whiteboards, $1,000+ each, would be an unreasonable burden to our educational budgets for no educational advantage.

  • No, I do not think whiteboards would prevent problems.

    Whiteboards that are bulletproof may delay some aspects of a shooting, I doubt that they would totally effective. I would think the expense would be substantial. There may be better ways to deal with individuals who seek to do harm in the schools around the country. Whiteboards alone are not the ideal solution.
