I'm hesitant to post this, but am truly curious about what other teachers have to say. This mostly applies to teachers in the US. Also, I'm not sure if this is the correct subforum -- if not, I apologize. I couldn't find similar threads using the search feature, so if they exist, please let me know! As there have been numerous school shootings, how do you as a teacher feel about gun violence in schools? Is it something you (or your students) worry about? Does your school have an emergency plan in case of a shooting? What do you believe the government's role should be in regard to gun violence in schools?
