IASB to consider arming teachers resolution this weekend

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Arming teachers and other staff members in Illinois schools is the subject of an Illinois Association of School Boards resolution that will get attention this weekend. The measure is getting support specifically from Mercer County School Board President Julie Wagner.

Again, the resolution does not require districts to arm teachers; the measure would only give them the option to do so.

The annual IASB convention is this weekend in Chicago.
