IASB Resolution on Local Option to Arm Teachers and Staff Garners Much Attention

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Should local schools have the option to arm properly trained staff members? The subject received much attention at the Illinois Association of School Board annual convention in Chicago earlier this month. A proposed resolution supporting such legislation was narrowly defeated by IASB delegate members 179-to-203 says the organization’s Ben Schwarm.

A similar proposal was brought up four years ago and then again last year and it could resurface next year with a few tweaks.
