Eleven of Florida’s 67 School Districts are Arming Teachers

Oct 11, 2019 | Featured

Eleven of Florida’s 67 county school districts have given classroom teachers the option to carry guns. Only seven of those eleven school districts have made their policy intensions public and they include: Bay, Gilchrist, Lafayette, Levy, Okeechobee, Putnam and Suwannee. But if the idea is to deter attacks, it is better to publicly claim that they are having armed teachers when the don’t than to have armed teachers and not make sure everyone knows.

Our entire list of states that have teachers carrying guns in schools is available here.
