Amendment to protect teachers during drills rejected

 

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – An amendment that aimed to further protect Indiana teachers during active shooter training is rejected. State Representative Tonya Pfaff introduced the amendment yesterday in response to an incident in January where teachers were hurt during a drill.

Pfaff wanted state law to say that teachers, students, and school staff cannot be shot with any kind of projectiles during a school drill. However, she says House Republicans did not want to discuss the amendment and there was no vote, effectively dismissing the proposal.

Pfaff says it’s a shame Hoosier teachers were hurt while they were teaching safety.
