Pistol Packing Teachers?

schoolbusThe school board for Levelland ISD (TX) voted last week to allow teachers to be permitted to carry firearms. Teachers must have approval from the superintendent, pass a training course and have a concealed carry permit.  Levelland, Texas located near Lubbock has about 3,000 students and 485 staff members.

Unfortunately, it has become necessary to increase school security but I’m not sure arming teachers is the best approach. I would prefer to see more security staff in schools.  So what do you think should teachers be armed? Will allowing teachers and administrators to legally have guns in the classroom make schools safer?
