One thought on “School Social Workers

  1. I was asked if I support having school resource officers in our schools.

    I am very passionate about the need for social workers in our schools, but we definitely need both school resource officers and social workers. I want our kids to have frequent positive interactions with the police. Having the school resource officer visit classrooms regularly is a great way to do this. Something I loved doing as a kindergarten and first grade teacher was inviting the school resource officer to come into my classroom and read stories to my students. It is an invaluable teaching lesson that police officers are people just like them and care about them! However, if a child is feeling “in trouble” for disruptive behavior at school, I don’t want the school resource officer to have to be involved.
