Question of the Day: Are Delaware schools more safe?


Here is the Question of the Day:

Legislators expanded and allocated $10 million to the Delaware School Safety and Security Fund last year. Since then, 16 out of 19 districts and four charter schools have submitted applications to finance constables, a hybrid of a police officer and security guard. Funding is also used for safety measures, including door and window locks, vestibule improvements, cameras and monitoring equipment. Do you feel these additional resources make schools safer? What should be added or done differently?
