Oklahoma school superintendent candidate calls for bulletproof textbooks
(Grady County, Oklahoma-NBC) October 24, 2006 - A retired veteran and candidate for Oklahoma state school superintendent says he wants to make schools safer by creating bulletproof text books.

Bill Crozier says the books could give students and teachers a fighting chance if there's a shooting at their school. Crozier, who is running for state superintendent of education, took to an open field near Minco to see if a textbook could stop a bullet during a school shooting.
