Last semester, several students got caught vaping during class teachers got tired of seeing that happen, and deans got tired of dealing with vaping pens. Metal was a big problem previous year and last semester, a student that was a junior dropped a knife while getting up for the pledge. Teacher freaked out and press the emergency button, in a few weeks the student got send to an alternative. During November a brutal fight occurred during supervision, a student that was wearing several metal rings cut and left the other student in a puddle of blood. Only 4% of schools have metal detectors placed in classrooms. In a random survey of 100 Morton east high school students, 45 students reported they should not install metal detectors.  

“I feel safer know that students won’t be walking into class with objects they’re not supposed to have,” said English teacher Mr.Frankfother.  

While some teachers feel safe, other students can see a problem with their daily school routine. 

“There are many problems with this because many objects that students can use for school might be metal like gym locks, laptop, and phones,” said senior student Pedro Zuniga. 

Teachers and deans can’t find a way to catch students with weed yet but can find found a way of stopping vaping pens. 

“At least I can still carry my weed,” said anonymous student.
