Second Thoughts
Think Arming Teachers is Crazy? Okay, But Did You Really Think?
 Dorn, Thomas, Roberts, Whitby, Blair, Maiers, Blumengarten


pic Special Report: Perhaps what's most crazy about the notion of arming teachers is how most discussions on this important issue are mostly devoid of sober, thoughtful, factual examination. On one extreme, we hear rabid gun supporters encouraging schools to enter an arms race. On the other we see a visceral rejection of the idea so strong that facts are irrelevant. We asked some educators and school security experts to really stop and think about this issue and were surprised by what we found. We think you will be too.
