In Florida, a teacher who wants to carry a firearm must have a concealed weapons permit, get permission from their employing school district, then must undergo 144 hours of training. Police serving as School Resource Officers only have to go through 40 hours of training. Granted, that is on top of the training they get to be a cop in the first place, but in Florida more hours of training are required to be a barber than are required to be a police officer. Most cops in Florida get 80 hours or less TOTAL of firearms training to get certified.
In the case of teachers, they are being forced to be trained to a higher level than the cops. The guardian program is a joke. The only teachers who are being certified are those who are politically connected to the administration, school board, or superintendent. Not one classroom teacher has been certified, at least not in the six counties where I know teachers who work there.

The system is working as designed and intended.
I know you're not shocked at all.
