Cincinnati Enquirer – Sara DeMuch |

“It’s unrealistic to expect a teacher in a high stress situation to not only protect their class and their students but also be responsible for taking out a school shooter. The majority of shooters have a connection to the school, so not only are you asking a teacher to shoot someone, you’re also asking them to possibly shoot a former or current student…. As a teacher who spends hours collecting data, checking facts and figures, and planning instruction using research-based methods, I’m tired of my students and I being held to a higher standard than our representatives.”
