@Wipqozn i'm not sure how big casses are in the US but 17 is a good average per class for Australia. just that were are 48 classes in my high school so the average would be 816 students and then you have 1 teacher per class and specialized job for adults (like guidance councilors, principles). unless they plan on doubling the size of the school or rebuilding it so every classroom is a shelter then it's just a bunch of craop
but something will need to be said about the fact that these saferoom being needed is an admission that there is an expectation of a school shooting
 
@Memor-X I'm pretty sure US class sizes are around 30 students per class
 
~low budgets~
 
@Wipqozn even worse then
@Unionhawk oh no, this could very easily be used by politicians, especially those in the pocket of the NRA, as a election promise "My government will ensure that school safe rooms are built and it will be funded by the government". the normal pork barreling
 
All while cutting teacher positions and increasing class sizes
 
Yeah Canada is bad for class sizes too
They don't seem to cut teacher jobs from what I've seen, but they cut a lot of non teacher positions

idk if class sizes increasing is cuts or just nonincreases tbh
it probably Depends On The State(tm)
 
@Memor-X that's not even news at this point though.
@Unionhawk probably a combination
Class sizes grow due to not building enough schools to keep up with growth, but cuts can play a large role too
 
the tying of property values to school funding probably doesn't help these things
 
Yeah that's just putting kids from low income families at even more of a disadvantage
