LETTERS: Why not try retirees as hall monitors?

What if stay-at home-parents or retired adults could volunteer to monitor public school halls at local neighborhood schools?

Monitors could wear a colorful vest and carry walkie-talkies. Each monitor would be responsible for the security of entrances and general patrol of a hall. Every hour monitors could swap halls.

This would give students and teachers a positive feeling of security. Local law enforcement would include outer perimeter patrol of all schools in routine daily patrol area. A background check would be mandatory to have this honor to protect our children. Some folks might like to volunteer for several days each month. Maybe the PTSA could research possible programs.

Why not volunteers to run the whole school system (minus teachers of course)? The taxpayer would save a lot of money.
