Last week: Many black legislators warned that arming teachers would pose a danger to the safety of minority students. They were implicitly saying that it would lead to the killing of black and brown students by school officials. Are things so bad in Florida schools? What an insult to those teachers and personnel! What is going on in Florida schools to prompt such fright? Is there any basis for such concerns? There are many valid arguments for not arming our teachers and school personnel, but the fear of them killing black or brown students is not one of them.
