Teachers and Guns | tutor2u Sociology

Donald Trumps’s recommendation that teachers should be armed to help prevent shootings in schools has been largely criticised by many organisations, teachers and the press.

However, one American survey reported that 45% of people in the US are in favour of arming teachers and other school staff. 

This tragic event has led to school walkouts in the US as well as debates at the highest level of government. The issue and this article could be discussed within Crime and Deviance and the Education topic.
