Texas school district sees value in having armed teachers on staff - EAGnews.org :: Education Research, Reporting, Analysis and Commentary
Superintendent David Thweatt, who designed the plan, is happy to explain the logic behind it.
He says that the schools in his district are a half hour away from the nearest police department.

“When you make schools gun-free zones, it’s like inviting people to come in and take advantage,” Thweatt told the Huffington Post.
