In Virginia, Fear Generates Funds for Schools

October 20, 2017

I read with a degree of dismay that the Virginia legislature will be giving several Central Virginia districts over $200,000 to beef up their security. As described in an article by Sydney Shadael in yesterday’s Lynchburg News and Advance several districts in that region will get anywhere from $22,000 to $80,000+ to install new safety devices like devices that automatically alert police and parents when a school is under a lockdown and  ID badges, cameras, and door locks. The article indicated that this was the fourth year such grants were offered, with the state earmarking roughly $6 million per year. I wish that the desire for equity was as strong and passionate as the desire for safety.
