ELC Opposes Tamaqua Area School District Decision to Arm School Personnel

The Education Law Center-PA stands with the Tamaqua Area Education Association and many in the Tamaqua school community in opposing their school district’s new policy allowing teachers and administrators to carry guns. The presence of guns in schools and arming of untrained school staff pose significant safety risks to schoolchildren and communities and are not authorized by state law.  See the ELC statement.
