Should teachers and administrators be armed in schools and classrooms? I don’t know. The ideas seems to have merit, but it could certainly have drawbacks as well. I’d like to see local schools experiment with various policies. My hope is that such experimentation would lead to “best practices” that would bring about policies that benefit students and school employees alike, keeping them safe from mass-shootings while also reducing the discomfort of having gun-toting officers patrolling the schools.
Unfortunately, the unique power of the government school monopoly and the unions has eliminated the possibility for such innovation and experimentation. So, if you think the NRA is on to something with its proposals, you are out of luck. If you are a teacher or administrator who’d like to be armed, sorry, the union speaks for you and all teachers/administrators.
The gun issue is only the latest education controversy to have one-size-fits-all “solutions” dictated by unions and government bureaucrats rather than parent and student preference.
