To earn a continuing teaching certificate takes five years of schooling in most states. The police academy In contrast as few as 16 weeks. If there is any need for police in schools wouldn’t it make sense to send a few credentialed teachers to the police academy? They could be deputized and paid a bonus each year. This would insure that security was sufficient in the few schools it is necessary while making sure that nurturing students took precedence over law enforcement.

Damn... That's an excellent idea...

And both sides could get behind that...

Cheers

There were similar suggestions from Republicans a few years ago in some large cities. The Democrats and their bankrollers in the teacher's unions shot it down, saying "teachers are teachers, not cops" or something like that.

Seems odd that, before obtaining two Masters degrees (over several years), it took me only eight weeks to become a “trained killer” in Army Basic Training. In just eight more weeks, I became a proficient artillery fire direction expert.

Might be different “skill sets”, or maybe, it’s the style of teaching/learning. The amount of time isn’t a factor.

Teachers should teach. Law enforcement should enforce laws. Either endeavor is a full-time job and cannot be performed simultaneously.

Good idea; but under no circumstances should teachers carry guns.

That's like a priest celebrating mass with an AK-47 strapped to his back.

That was one of the issues brought up. The fact that when active shooter situations arise on school properties, no one but the shooter is armed. There were teachers who were willing to take firearms training and have access to weapons at school to protect students in the event of a shooter situation.

It got shot down by Dems in most places, despite teacher willingness. It seems Democrats would rather see a lot of children murdered because they see that as ammunition in their anti-Second Amendment campaign.

At dead kids?

That's very Democrat of you -- let American children be mass murdered on the altar of liberal politics, but G-d help us if we temporarily separate illegal aliens' children from their parents when they sneak across the border.

But then, you folks probably look at these preadolescent or teen casualties as "the ones that got away" from the abortionists.

If I was a teacher and a shooter came through, I would want something to protect the children with. I would much rather have some way to try to protect them when trapped. Watching them get shot down is unacceptable.

Not that deep, no. Just to the point.
