The Tennessee Education Association has quietly gone on record supporting a proposal that would allow educators to carry a weapon to class, at least as a last resort. The education group is supporting a bill under consideration by the state legislature. The TEA would prefer teachers not need to bring a gun to school.

If there’s no money for a uniformed officer, the legislation allows an administrator or faculty member to be trained.
