There was a suggestion from the President of the United States Donald Trump that the districts should arm the teachers and the other employees of the school in the wake of the Florida school shootings. This suggestion from Trump did not go well with the leaders and educators in Connecticut.
They felt that this suggestion is horrendous and dangerous. The President of the Hartford Federation of Teachers, Andrea Johnson, said that this idea of the President is completely horrendous. She said that it was really baffling to her that he had even thought about such an idea.
It would be better off for the Congress to pass laws that could prevent the children from getting attacked and killed in schools. It is not a good idea to get on the backside of the school teachers and the staff members.
The superintendent of West Hartford schools, Tom Moore, said that this suggestion from the President is a way to leave the things in the hands of the teachers and the school.
It is very important to get to the root of this problem and look at ways to avoid such dangerous acts in schools. It is not a good idea to ask the teachers who are psychologists, educators, guidance counselors to take on another responsibility of security guards.
