“We are the NRA”

“In the business of killing kids on a different day”

Fox News host Shep Smith took to the air Wednesday to read off a lengthy list of fatal school shootings in the U.S. since the 1999 attack at Columbine High School in Colorado.

“Since Columbine in 1999, there have been 25 fatal, active school shooting incidents at elementary and high schools in America,” Smith said, before ticking off a list of shootings that spanned nearly two decades.

What’s the average? A school shooting per year?

And now they want teachers to arm themselves?

Yeah…

That’s going to work…

Teachers Who Bully

The problem of teachers bullying students is more common than you think. Learn how to prevent your child from becoming a victim.

By Katherine Kam

In recent years, a slew of books have offered parents ample insight into the minds of young bullies.

But what if it’s the teacher who screams, threatens, or uses biting sarcasm to humiliate a child in front of the class?

Teacher bullying gets little attention, say Stuart Twemlow, MD, a psychiatrist who directs the Peaceful Schools and Communities Project at the Menninger Clinic in Houston. But his new study, published in The International Journal of Social Psychiatry, hints that the problem may be more common than people believe.

In his anonymous survey of 116 teachers at seven elementary schools, more than 70% said they believed that bullying was isolated. But 45% admitted to having bullied a student. “I was surprised at how many teachers were willing to be honest,” Twemlow says.

Yes…please. Lets arm these teachers with guns.

Such a great idea…

NOT.
