Thanks to a miracle material called Dyneema, the board can repel shots from handguns and shotguns, allowing teachers precious time in case of an attack.
Gun advocates say the boards might be one step in a broader school protection strategy. Teachers now have a new line of protection to shield their class from a shooter.
A Maryland armor manufacturer has developed bullet proof white boards that teachers can use while conducting class lessons and during an emergency.
The boards are made of a state-of-the-art material called Dyneema, and can repel gun shots from handguns and shotguns the types of weapons most commonly used in school shootings, said George Tunis, CEO of Hardwire, which created the boards.

we need transparent aluminum barriers /s
Until someone raids a school to steal this bulletproof shield to engage in bigger crimes/assaults.
and then what? the attack will end?
armed employees are a better shield.
Why allow the gunman into the classroom?
Why allow the gunman into the school?
Would it not be wiser to place security measures designed to intercept and neutralize the gunman before he arrives at his targets?
I wonder how much longer western people will survive being as staggeringly stupid as they are.
The rational response would be to argue for both.
What about giant, thick cobwebs?
So tax payers pay for board when a cheaper gun would work just fine?
"While conducting class?" Must be for Chicago schools.

Not much longer. As soon as the easy credit stops, we are done.
How about a microwave array that can melt incoming bullets. Whatever gets thru, the teachers can parry with sword and shield. Conan the Tautologist.
This is so breathtakingly dumb it really is hard to comment.
liberal la la land depends on magic
Maybe if they only had these in Benghazi...
Hmm... A stroke of genius! Why, if I am writing on the whiteboard, the shooter can walk in, shoot, completely penetrate me, and hit me again when it ricochets back off the whiteboard. Great.... I think I’d rather they just let me carry a gun.
If I were a killer with intent, I would just walk around that thing while my targets' vision was obscured by same and do what I came to do anyway. Either that or just stomp that plywood contraption down on the ground.
Right on target. I have no confidence that our Western-based societies have much of a future at all.
It's good to be old in these times.
