Teachers Training to Kill

This documentary witnesses the heated debate playing out in real time where school boards in America are seriously considering arming their teachers for the first time in order to protect their very vulnerable pupils.

Many schools are now simply waiting for an expected gun attack from a disturbed pupil.

The film features Butler County Ohio, where two years ago a mass shooting occurred. As a direct result, the community are now grappling with controversial and worrying ideas on how to keep their schools safe.

Included is the sheriff who is so passionate about arming teachers that he puts billboards up in town to persuade the community that he is right.

There are also alarming stories of those who have the first-hand terrifying experience of being under attack from a fellow pupil.

As a direct consequence of these horrific incidents some local pupils, as young as five, are now drilled in the art of how to survive in an attack.

On the other side are those who fervently disagree with this proposed idea, including a boy who was shot and his father, who have both publicly forgiven the shooter.

They don't believe the answer is for teachers to carry guns.

The show has gained access to FASTER, one of America's most controversial summer schools, where high school teachers are trained to use guns, deal with potential school shooting scenarios and if the situation demands it, kill.

The film follows the summer course in the foothills of the Appalachians, where teachers undergo target practice.

Here they are put through drills that simulate school shootings.

This documentary presents both sides of the argument and considers who might win the battle of arming America's teachers.
