Crime & Safety
Butler is not the greatest town for non-athletic people, especially if you're not white. The public schools are notoriously bad, and the police department isn't the greatest thing either.
Butler is a really friendly community and very family oriented. I truly wish the High School was bigger and more students attended.
I lived here basically my whole life, and it's an okay town. The biggest problem is the education system, most high graduates, if they don't drop out, do go on to a four-year college. Many go to community college or straight to the work force. Drugs are also a problem in schools. Money is also mismanaged by the school, seeing as how most if their budget goes to new football equipment, when they could really use new textbooks and desks.
