Parents sue over district's policy to arm teachers at school


January 8, 2019

TAMAQUA, Pa. (AP) — Parents are going to court to block a Pennsylvania school district from allowing teachers to carry guns in school, the latest flashpoint in a debate playing out in many states over whether it's wise to arm educators to protect students from mass shooters.

The district in Tamaqua, a coal-mining region about 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Philadelphia, serves more than 2,100 students in three schools and is believed to be the first school system in Pennsylvania to let teachers carry weapons.
