MASON CITY, Iowa - A private school in Florida is offering parents the chance to buy bulletproof panels for their kids.
Florida Christian Schools are selling them in order to provide protection to students.
One local teacher we spoke with says it's unsettling to think of kids needing a safety feature like that.
“It’s not something you would think of everyday. As a parent, I don't think you'd want to think about having a bulletproof panel in my backpack that would be the last thing that would cross my mind,” Brennan Fischer, a teacher from Garner-Hayfield-Ventura said.
The panels sell for $120.
