My kids school is spending an ungodly amount of money renovating their building this year and updating the playing surface and stands of their football stadium. An airlock entrance would be cheaper than a football stadium. So why are we looking at the football field and not better security? We would have to include two police officers in their staff budget. I think this money could be found without much strain on individual tax payers.
When you look at the entire bill it's astronomical. When you break it down per locality it's more reasonable.
