An Oklahoma retired veteran and state school superintendent candidate is campaigning to have bullet-proof textbooks. Bill Crozier tested traditional textbooks to see what, if any kind of bullets a textbook would stop. The traditional textbooks were able to stop handgun bullets, but not rifle bullets. Crozier is suggesting making the covers out of Kevlar.
While this is a good idea, and could potentially save lives, I don't think parents are ready to handle the fact that their own children would need to carry bullet-proof material in school. It's a reality slap to the face.
