School safety

Why don't the schools put at least one armed officer at each school and hire three to four security officers in plain clothes to work at each school under the direction of the police? Whether they would be allowed to carry a firearm would be up to the discretion of the police and school. This is less costly than hiring more police officers. The main thing here is to deter any threat at the perimeter.

School laptops

Since the brand new Cape Central High School auditorium was built "not" to seat the entire faculty and student body, does that also mean the future laptop program currently being discussed will run "just a little short" for students as well as teachers, thus making them buy their own?

School safety: Unarmed security guards? What will these guards do when somebody starts shooting at them....blow their whistles.

School laptops: I doubt if any of the kids already have laptops....get real.

The Do Nothing Congress is now being replaced with a New Congress....what will they do to solve the finical problems.
