      teachers are required by law to report signs of possible child abuse. This is an "officer of the court" type of legal duty that lawyers and some others have. Their responsibilities are starting to resemble those of probation/parole officers, who are law enforcement officers. All that is needed is for there to be required weapons training for teachers at a law enforcement academy.
      Of course, this is all a bunch of wild speculation about the possible consequences of implementing right wind fantasies about arming classroom teachers.
