We have received word that a reporter has reached out to at least one NJEA county president asking for names of “average teachers” who would be willing to go to a gun range to “see how they do.”

While the purpose of the exercise may be to demonstrate that arming teachers is not a good idea, we do not believe it is a good idea for our members to participate in a story of that nature.

We urge you, if contacted, NOT to participate in this story or to provide the names of members who might.

NJEA is taking every opportunity to criticize the idea of arming educators, and we urge you to do the same.
