Do you think that teachers should take self defence classes to pretect students

I was watching the news the other night and they were saying in Texas that the teachers in this state were going for self defence classes so they can pretect there students against gun men or who ever enters the school

I feel it is good for women to take self defence classes for when one is by themselves in a street and if you come across someone you can give them a hefty kick and punch

But to have this coming into schools is wrong to some exstent
How do you defend yourself against a man with a gun pointed at you and how do you pretect the children
You cant the best way is to try and talk the gun man out of doing waht he is doing and try and get the kids out of there

I feel that school is a place for learning and having it a happy place for kids

Do you think that there should be self defence classes for teachers
Plus waht do you do when you have a gun man in the school do you try and hit him or talk him out of doing the crime

I'm all for homeschooling. Government schools are awful dangerous places and indoctrination centers that teach children to fear authority and stifle independent and critical thought.

But if you're going to conform to the status quo and send your children there; then it would be better to send them where the office personnel are armed.

Karate chops aren't going to stop a bullet.

It's a terrible idea. They want to arm and train the teachers...money that could be better spent on materials that the already crippling education system desperately needs to teach adequately. But no, let's work on retroactively preventing what didn't (and probably wouldn't) even happen in Texas (referring to Newtown, CT).

They're asking teachers to be able to carry a weapon and make split-second decisions to keep the peace.

The Texas Lieutenant Governor is asking the teachers to be cops.

Yeah, that's why I say it's time to forget sending your kids to government or government funded schools. We have now reached the point of no return.

Well l agree it is aterrible idea and just say you are in the firing line you wont be able to pretect children by hitting the intruder

it is true the texas governer wants the state to be cops in a way and all what happens here is more people will still get hurt

Even carrying a firearm is not good for the children to see
School should feel safe and happy but to have children seeing a millatary way is not good

The way you solve problems is getting rid of automatic hand guns where idoits can not use this sort of weapon at least with a hand gun some people can run

But lwhen l was watching the news and they were saying about self defence the guy in charge of this said it was sad that America is resorting to this method

i think goverment run or private schools still have the same problems
But l have to say a rich scholl could put more in but poor school should get the same help too

You can still have a man coming off the street with his firearm

I think they were even suggecting locking the scholls up as well

But this is not good thing to do too

Exactly...I'd hate to have to survive now.

I was part of the last generation to attend school before everything seeped in: YouTube, social networking, cyber-bullying...makes me shudder.

I think self-defense is always good for someone to learn, and if a teacher is doing their job in a dangerous area, I think its good for them to be prepared. With so many evil people shooting kids these days, I'd even be in favor of the teachers carrying guns.

Even if it doesn't help much, self-defense couldn't hurt. So I don't know if they SHOULD but I'm certainly not opposed to it.
