DeWine Announces First-Responder Training For Ohio Teachers
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine wants Ohio teachers to partner with law enforcement for training on how to respond to school violence.
“The real first responders in these situations are teachers. They are the ones that are there,” DeWine said in a morning press conference.
DeWine says courses will start January 17. He says the recommendation for teacher training came out of the School Safety Task Force formed in the wake of the shooting that killed three students at Chardon High School last February.
DeWine says law enforcement officers and teachers could potentially be trained together. The training collaboration aims to bring together educators, police officers and mental health professionals.
When asked if teachers and staffers should be allowed to carry guns in school, DeWine said that is a decision left up to local school boards.
