The schools in bad areas can be awful, with marijuana in the bathrooms and kids drinking in the bathrooms, there should be guards with at least tasers just encase kids get rowdy and start a riot of some sort, seeing as they are in a bad neighborhood with lots of crime, I wouldnt doubt one of them has a knife in their backpack.
School personnel should not be armed. School personnel being armed poses a much bigger threat to the school then the personnel being unarmed and unable to protect themselves from an attack. The best way for them to defend themselves is to have metal scanners at the entrances to the school.
Despite the high-profile school shootings of late, violent crime and shootings in schools are exceedingly rare. Posting armed sentries in classrooms desensitizes children to the freedoms they suppress by living in a police state. We should reject the temptation to constantly trade personal freedom for supposed ideals of safety. Safety can never bu fully guaranteed.
