On one hand, we seem to have a little problem with prison guards smuggling stuff in to prisoners.
On the other hand, we also occasionally have issues with public school teachers taking leave of their senses.
What is called for is some out-of-the-box thinking. This is so obvious, oh beloved State of Texas, I can’t believe you didn’t already think of it yourself.
Texas has lots of prison guards. Texas also has lots of teachers.
For a one-week trial period, effective immediately, all teachers will report to the prison nearest you for guard duty. Meanwhile, all prison guards will report to your nearest public school – you’ll be teaching classes.
I’m guessing it could be a win-win for both education and public safety. It’s also possible that neither the guards nor the teachers would notice a substantial difference.
I should bill you people for this stuff.
