Wow! A politician actually doing something he promised to do if he got elected! You have all my support Mr. Nelson.

Not going to say we shouldn't spend money on fire sprinklers, we also need to spend money on earthquake. In recent events we need to spend money student, teacher and playground safety. Secure those schools.

Waste of money. Period.
I've had to deal with fire supression systems in the past.
Fire sprinklers are a maintenance hassle and cause many false alarms (most systems have flow alarms) and more accidental water damage (pipes break, someone snaps a sprinkler head off) than any damage they may prevent from an actual fire.
As Mr. Goldman noted. A child has not died in a school fire since 1933. What issue is Mr. Nelson trying to address here? Surely there are more pressing needs in our schools.
I promise we'll be reading stories about how the music teacher came in Monday morning and saw a water fall coming out of the band storage room. All the instruments ruined.
Just something to think about.
