Armed Teachers Will Be Allowed On Campus With Hundreds of Hours Less Training Than Police, Ohio Judge Rules


Ohio (Newsweek) – Ohio teachers authorized to carry concealed weapons on school grounds don’t have to complete as many hours of weapons training as police, a judge ruled on Thursday. In a blow to parents who filed the suit, Butler County judge Charles Pater ruled that the Madison Local School District could continue its policy of allowing armed teachers on campus, even if school staffers haven’t completed the 700-plus hours of firearms training that police officers must complete.
