A High School Is Being Built in Michigan to Protect Kids from Shootings
Well, this is it. This is where we're at.
Michigan made the national news yesterday and, while this SHOULD be a good thing, it's still pretty freakin' sad.
Construction was started on Fruitport High School in 2018, just after the Parkland, Florida school shooting. It's about half-done; should be completed in August of 2021.
The school is designed to thwart a shooting. Corridors are curved to reduce line-of-sight, the glass is shatter-resistant and there are lock-down systems that can be activated by cell phone.
And if you're wondering where they got the $45 million that this project will cost, it was an approved 30-year millage that will generate about $50 million by the end.
Is this the answer?
