Senator Barbara Boxer’s School Safety Legislation

From Boxer’s website. Does she really think that $40 million dollars, nationally, even if matched locally, will pay for:

  1. structural improvements in schools
  2. conduct security assessments
  3. conduct training for students, teachers, and administrators

Come on…

The bipartisan bill – the School and Campus Safety Enhancements Act – would provide communities and schools with resources to install classroom locks, lighting, fencing, reinforced doors and other deterrent measures. The measure would also help schools conduct security assessments and training for students, teachers and administrators, and allow schools to better coordinate with local law enforcement. The measure would authorize $40 million annually for these safety improvements. Local communities and schools would apply for the Secure Our Schools grants through the Justice Department, with federal resources matched 50-50 by local governments. The Boxer-Collins bill would also create a Department of Justice and Department of Education joint task force to develop advisory guidelines to help K-12 schools keep children safe. The bill also includes a provision authored by Senators Mark Warner D-VA and Mark Kirk R-IL to establish a National Center for Campus Public Safety to help colleges and universities protect students.
