Securing the school is their job. Defunding means they no longer have to be mental health counsellors, domestic dispute breakupers, drug stuff, etc. They could focus on crime and criminals.

I went through a convertisis period once. It was fun. I’m ancient – 50. I found Eastern Orthodox in 1994 online and became hooked. Almost joined a monastery. Pretty much left it all by 2000 – learned a bit of Russian too.
I didn’t like the politics when I found it – I’ve never been conservative a day in my life — but I liked the theology of it; theosis and stuff; got into it.
