“I don’t really care if that’s the way they want to deal with those problems. In a year or two, [the students] can live off campus.”

— Pete Papas, Northwest, self-employed








“I’m completely for it. I teach high school freshmen and when I look at where those kids’ maturity level is, I’m fearful of putting them together at 18, 19 or 20.”

— Marc Williams, Bowie, high school teacher







“By the time you’re a college freshmen, you’re a legal adult. You should know how to take care of yourself. The social aspect is important for any student.”

— Molly Jepsen, Northwest, high school teacher








“I think it’s a great idea. Today’s youths are already under peer pressure without that accessibility or availability in such close quarters.”

— Kim Toland, District Heights, manager
