If my mother, who had to work 3 and even an occasional 4th job just to make ends meet, is then expected to train to shoot a gun and supply her own bullets (because let’s be real, they ain’t going to supply those) that’s a no go!
How can we realistically demand that our educators, who already aren’t valued, be required to put in the man hours to be ‘adequately’ trained for situations like this? This idea of arming teachers shows a disconnect the govt has with education.
As I got to middle school and eventually high school, my mother took on more cleaning and even took an additional job tutoring at risk students who weren’t attending school whether it be for health issues or behavioral ones. She still had to pay out of pocket for supplies.
Then as my mother switched schools districts and started serving students in predominantly low income and majority black communities in Missouri, she had to fork up even more money to pay for supplies as these schools were even more under served.
When I was still in elementary school my mom took on a second job as a cleaning lady and we would often spend our nights and weekends cleaning up to 15 buildings. STILL GOING TO SCHOOL AND FINISHING EXTRA CURRICULARS. Who was right there cleaning with her? Me, of course!
