Teachers Object To Wearing Goggles And Being Shot At With Pellet Guns
Teachers is Missouri are upset about safety drills where they’re shot at with pellet guns.
Four teachers at Farmington High school contacted the Prosecuting Attorney’s office on Tuesday after they were handed goggles during the “active shooter” exercise.
Associate Superintendent Sarah Long says school personnel were not forced to take part in that aspect of the drill.
“…which means when they actually go in and show you what an actual shooter situation is you can say: I don’t want to be one of the victims, I think that’s too scary,” says Long. “Teachers could sign up to work in department meetings and in other professional developmental opportunities. We had about 45 members of the staff to do those.”
