    Though the bats are largely symbolic, Superintendent William Hall said, they are there as a "last resort".

    "Unfortunately, we're in a day and age where one might need to use them to protect ourselves and our kids."

    The superintendent said the aim was to have a "consistent tool" for every teacher in every classroom.
    So just in case it wasn't clear enough before, the district spent $1800 giving every teacher one of these:



    It's literally a novelty item.

    Wait. They are not even giving them proper bats? Every kid on the baseball and softball teams is better equipped than that.

    Aye, I wonder why more secure classroom doors are not part of any broad-solution ideas.

    I would presume two concerns exist: Fire and escaping fire. And misuse of these secure doors by either shooters themselves (to barracade in) or other mal intent individuals (teachers/staff doing bad things of some sort).
    And it will be abused - intentionally or not. Look no further than locked cabin doors in planes after 9/11 and what happened with flight 4U 9525

    I think that was more of a failing of his employer than a failing with the door.

    EDIT: Oh, sorry, you were making a comment about your perception of US schools and how they handle budgets.

    Carry on.
    Indeed.

    As a non-German with no personal experience with the German school system or budget process, I would never loudly claim knowledge of it I did not posses.

    Was a very specific U.S. comment only.

    (In before a Brit who has never stepped foot in a U.S. School or School board meeting tells us all how U.S. schools and budgets and administrators REALLY are, lol)

    It's also Hitler's 129th birthday. Columbine was on the 110th.
