What will it take for the school “board” to hire armed security guards for the school???? Why is there Charidy this and Charidy that for all types of things yet not a simple armed guard. The tuition is sky high, one of the highest in Brooklyn, and they can’t seem to find the funds to bore an armed guard. Really? Really? What does some Yukel in a booth help in a situation like this?
