Local school trustees reached a consensus this week to go ahead with an armed educator policy, but the direction is anything but clear.

Trustees on Tuesday were split on whether to allow armed staff in all schools with about half of them agreeing with the idea and half favoring other options.

This is an incredibly difficult decision for our schoolboard and administration. Yes, we must protect our most precious resourse... our children. We have entered into a very frightening time for our entire nation. I don't know that having teachers and school personnel take on this responsibiity is fair to them. They have been trained to educate and care for children. There will be no easy answer to solving this dilemma.
