Before the school year began, Spokane School District officials predicted 13 resource officers would be armed and on duty when classes resumed following the Christmas break. That did not happen. The resource officers are there. The guns are not. Mark the district “tardy,” but don’t mark it down. Introducing guns into schools clearly represents a change in working conditions, and a significant one at that. The district contract with resource officers must be renegotiated, but many of the issues raised are new, and district and labor representatives have nothing in the way of a model that can be cut and pasted onto a new agreement/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board.

Question: Do you see anything wrong with arming resource officers in North Idaho schools?
