Elementary School Upping Security Measures

The new Watertown Elementary School was recently built with a few modifications that stray from the ordinary, or perhaps not. Maybe it is merely the next step in our seat belt legal smoke-free world to build an elementary school based around extreme security measures. Among the innovations, this school has 23 cameras, low camoflauge-free bushes and windows that can not be easily accessed from the outside, according to the article. This system also happens to be on the cutting edge of environmental efficiency. The future!

I liked this article. It examined this unusual school building -- a good idea for a featury type of story -- but then went into further detail. It talked about the eco-friendliness of it, then about the aged concept being utilized in a new way.
