School districts taking a pass on arming teachers

In the realm of “solutions no one asked for,” the Tennessee General Assembly and Gov. Bill Lee are learning a lesson.

While legislative leaders and the Governor refuse to actually address gun violence in schools, the policymakers have created a new law on the subject.

This one would place more guns in schools.

Unsurprisingly, this has not been eagerly received by school districts.

Even some of the rural districts the law was created to help also announced it’s not in their best interest to allow teachers to carry guns.

I bet the school systems would much prefer funding for teacher compensation and resources for students.

But policymakers aren’t into that.
