Sometimes the best of intentions can still lead to a remarkably silly idea. Say you wanted to maximise the chance of kids escaping unharmed from the rifle sights of a crazy who was shooting up a school – how would you go about it? Why, by making textbook jackets out of kevlar, of course! To quote the article:
“Crozier says the idea is still in its initial stages and he has no idea how much it would cost to cover the books.”
When he finds that out, I believe the idea will have reached its final stages.
