Florida Governor Signs Divisive Bill Allowing for Armed Teachers


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, signed into law Wednesday a divisive measure that will allow schools to arm classroom teachers, part of a longer list of school safety changes made at the recommendation of a task force that reviewed last year's mass shooting at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The bill expands eligibility for a program created a month after the February 2018 shooting that allows districts to partner with local sheriff's offices to train and arm some personnel. The Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, named for a coach who died in the Stoneman Douglas attack, originally limited participation to non-instructional staff.
