The world we live in: $1M school security system doesn’t work

After the shooting at Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System implemented a million-dollar security system. It was designed to allow a school staff member to press a panic alarm with the ID badge if something catastrophic were to happen. Great in theory but the system doesn’t work.

North Carolina has one of the lowest teacher salaries in the country. But rather than paying them a decent wage or, you know, doing something about guns falling into the hands of school children, we’d rather pay for faulty equipment that could potentially do more harm than good in case of an emergency.
