Teachers Get Baseball Bats to Confront Shooters in Pennsylvania District

Teachers will use a meeting of state and federal education ministers in Adelaide to call for better funding for public schools.

Amid debates over school safety in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting, one Pennsylvania school district has chose to arm teachers without giving them guns.

"We fully support them being out right now", she said.

It's part of the Trojan Response plan - we're not making it up - which stands for: "Threat assessment", "Run", "Obstruct and barricade", "Join forces", "Attack", and "Never give up". Hillsdale Middle School of Cajon Valley Union School District has had the wonderful opportunity to have one of those coaches at their school.

"It's a last resort", Will Hall, schools superintendent said.

Hillsdale Middle School has an on site technology expert coach, using techniques from Dynamic Learning Project, that is giving teachers confidence to use technology in the classroom.

Though the buckets of rocks were not a direct response to the Parkland shooting, Helsel cited other school shootings, including at Virginia Tech and Columbine, as the inspiration for the move.

"In an age when schools are eliminating art, music and P.E., we are going to have even more time for these subjects?"

Also, "the parties agree that Ms. Pelano should be given one last chance to continue her employment with the district", the agreement said.

Numerous teachers who filed on Wednesday said they had already been considering a run for office before the walkout.

"I think they really set themselves up to be the butt of a joke with them", Barish said.

"I just decided now is the time to step out and help fund education the way it should properly be funded".

"It will now be impossible to meet with other staff and families, because there won't be any shared time available", Kleser said.

Her son, Josh Martin, said his experience growing up as the child of a teacher gives him a valuable perspective, too.

But in regard to teacher preparation, elementary teachers who prep in their rooms won't have that option if there is an art class being conducted, Zahn said. They've spent time at their local library, and they were planning to see the Oklahoma City National Memorial, which honors the 168 victims of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

"I think that the walkout we had was focused more on weaponry than it was about actual community".
