THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, Stillwater Public Schools in Oklahoma needs the DA’s help. There was a school shooting in 2012, and now the district is cutting all of the school resource police officers to save money. Why are they broke? They spent 7 million on buildings, $70,000 on cell phones for coaches and admin, $150,000 raises for several thousand administrators, and although the district is facing huge deficits, even cutting the music program for special education students, they are not touching athletics. Help us keep Stillwater kids safe by getting this news out. The O’Colly, OSU’s newspaper, is covering the story, but The Dirty has a much higher profile. College students can vote in board elections and are a part of the Stillwater community, we want the OSU voices heard.
I wouldn’t want to go to a school that needs to rent police officers. Doesn’t sound safe at all.- nik
