FY12 Budget

Less security, more support!

I work in a high school of 1600 students which employs 23 security guards. With the budget proposal as it stands, maybe we will have 24 for 2012.

Our students would be suspended less, drop out less, and learn significantly more about handling conflict with grace by shifting the budget for security to a budget for Restorative Justice. Security guards and disciplinarians don't need to lose their jobs -- just retrain them to implement positive behavior interventions!
