Letters to the Editor on arming teachers, censoring violence, dedicated women, Pope Francis

As a longtime public schoolteacher at the elementary level who recently retired, I strongly believe it is a bad idea to allow school employees to be armed. School is a place where children feel safe; for some, it may be an oasis of security. Would the presence of a gun in a classroom or elsewhere in a school building make students feel safer? More likely it would create paranoia among the children if they feel there is a “need” for a gun being there.
