*shrugs* then I assume you have never been on a connection where SSL connections actually suffer greatly. I also assume that you don't have budgets that are so strict, (yay for non-profit private schools?) in your work environment that you have to still monitor what users do, but are stuck with open source software to accomplish such things.

You would be correct.

But having to use OSS isn't much an excuse either IMO; there's LetsEncrypt where you can get SSL certs for free: https://letsencrypt.org/

Exactly, there is no excuse these days not have a website secured with SSL thanks to Letsencrypt and you don't need a static IP address either because there is SNI aswell. Also SSL is becoming friendly with bandwidth as it doesn't need a lot thanks to developments for companies like Google and is becoming increasingly faster than HTTP.

"increasingly faster than HTTP" till you end up on something that isn't a typical transport medium, satellite. lol

In all seriousness though, when you have ~130 users on only a 10Mbps pipe, you will hate SSL as you will be forced to cache website data, and the more SSL there is, the less you can cache. It's why I am against SSL on things that don't actually require it.
