I remember a friend who told me that during the Viet Nam era he opted to become a teacher, so that he could stay out of a horrible, unjust war. Now, teaching itself is participating in war, at least it will be if the NRA has it’s way.
LOESCH on proposal to arm teachers: "Perimeter fences should be locked. Doors should be locked & monitored. You should have video security. If every layer fails, as a last line of defense, a teacher who is trained & capable of acting when needed to defend themselves & students." pic.twitter.com/3qcgbAZhIb

I had a cruel stepfather who beat & molested me, locked me in my room, even threatened to take out the lightbulb & make me sit in the dark. But even I can't fathom what makes @DLoesch such a pathetically dark soul that would subject kids to living such a militarized existence.

Teaching generations of children to live in fear is not a good way to grow a society of healthy adults. This is pure nuts.
