ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque school board has passed a resolution in opposition to the idea of arming teachers.
The Albuquerque Journal reported Tuesday that the resolution by the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education comes after a February shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 dead.
President Donald Trump is promoting the idea of arming gun-adept educators and trusted staff.
The resolution passed by the board states that teachers are not trained law enforcement officers and should not be asked or incentivized to bring weapons into the classroom.
