In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a week ago today, some legislators are talking of introducing legislation to allow teachers to carry guns in Tennessee schools. TEA believes:
Notwithstanding the Sandy Hook tragedy, schools are still among the safest places children can be. As caring adults, we can and must do all we can to ensure all children have safe learning environments. At the same time, we should not rush to take extreme action without careful study of what actually improves school safety.
