A school resource officer is a sworn police officer assigned to a particular school. That means they are armed, and changing what you call them won't make any difference in that. Police are only supposed to be scary to those who have done something wrong. Kids need to be able to feel safe going to the SRO to provide information about fights, weapons, drugs, etc. A good part of the job is being accessible to the students on campus. Giving them some scary name won't make them more effective in stopping bad guys, but it might make them less effective in protecting the people they're there to protect. 3 months ago
I can tell you what happened to kids working their way through college- have you looking at tuition costs anytime in the last few years? Tuition has more than doubled, and in many places has gone up 300 or 400%. States have slashed funding to public universities, and kids have no choice but to finance their education, or not go at all. Realize that times have changed since you were a "young whipper-snapper" and stop criticizing something you don't understand.7 months ago
This school is a joke, and is apparently making no effort to improve things. Many of their "professors" only hold bachelor's degrees. Three credit hour classes are required to meet for four hours a week, during which the instructors basically read straight out of the book. The tuition is cheap, but it's still not worth the money.7 months ago
