I think that the state needs to make sure that all schools have enough
Police officers. That bill was just passed. But I do know that they need
to have more on campus then ever before. I think that the state needs
to make sure that we are safe at schools. I do not think that it should
be left in the hands of our kids or teachers to carry. Our teachers
have a job to do and thats to teach and to make sure that our kids feel
that they can talk to them and help them with there homework amongst
other duties they have. But in no way shape or form should teachers
carry. Its not there job. Its the Police officers. The Federal
commissioners , The President needs to issue out more funds to keep
schools safe. Its not our teachers responsibility. Let them
solely focus on our childrens education and let the Police do the
protecting. Just like they do on premises with the white house – they
have guards everywhere. Why cant the schools get what they need.
