The shameful history of murderous violence in our schools has become an all too common occurrence. Prepare yourselves for the schools of today and the educational warehouses of tomorrow. Welcome to the violence-proofed school building of the 21st century. We avoid landscaping because it gives a tactical advantage to those attacking the school. We ensure we have extra police patrols around the perimeter to detect anyone leaving without authorization as well as entering without permission. We use high-impact security lighting to flood-light the entire exterior of the school and a 10-foot chain-link security fence. Students come to school in video-equipped buses with two-way radios with speed-dials for 911 and GPS tracking for rapid tactical deployment. Students who drive are provided a 10-foot chain-link fence with razor wire patrolled by law enforcement with a zero-tolerance policy toward all weapons and augmented by random vehicle checks. A security guard checks every human being coming into the school regardless of age, position, or status. There are reinforced concrete dividers separating the school from the parking lot doubling to block drive-by shootings or school bombing attempts.

The students have embedded GPS chips within them as well as ID cards attached to their dress above their left breast pockets for quick visual ID. CCTV's record all visual intelligence information throughout the school and are constantly monitored by an Officer within the school to coordinate Quick Response teams.
