(NEW YORK) — Educators around a U.S. are protesting proposals to arm teachers by posting with a hashtag, #ArmMeWith, to ask for some-more propagandize counselors, books, snacks for inspired students and other things they contend schools need rather than guns.
As of Saturday morning, a hashtag has been used about 96,700 times.
President Donald Trump called this week for defending teachers in a arise of a latest mass sharpened during a school, a Feb. 14 electrocute during a high propagandize in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff.
The boss pronounced teachers with guns would offer improved insurance than a confidence ensure who “doesn’t adore a children.” He also pronounced teachers would be means to respond some-more fast than police.
The nation’s teachers’ unions quickly deserted a idea.
“We don’t wish to be, and would never have a imagination indispensable to be, sharpshooters. No volume of training can ready an armed clergyman to go adult opposite an AR-15,” Randi Weingarten, a boss of a American Federation of Teachers, pronounced in a statement. “How would defending teachers even work? Would kindergarten teachers be carrying guns in holsters? Is each classroom now going to have a gun closet? Will it be locked? When we have seconds to act when we hear a formula for an active shooter, is a clergyman ostensible to use those seconds removing her gun instead of removing her students to safety?”
Many teachers on amicable media seemed to agree, regulating a #ArmMeWith hashtag to conflict a idea of defending educators while highlighting simple resources that they advise their schools lack.
A Twitter user whose form pronounced she is a Pittsburgh clergyman posted a pointer earnest “to quarrel for my students and colleagues. Please “#armmewith a things we need.”
Another clergyman pronounced “I would risk my life to save my students though we would never keep a secluded gun in my classroom.” Instead, this clergyman asks for hankie and paper towels.
Another lady who identifies herself as a clergyman tweeted, “#ArmMeWith my possess voice. Educators should make decisions about education, not politicians.”
One Twitter user identified as a propagandize advisor in San Francisco tweeted she needs reduce ratios of counselors to students and improved connectors to therapists for “my anxious, suicidal mislaid kids.”
One clergyman acknowledges a need for propagandize confidence though said it should not come for her carrying a gun “around a preschooler.”
