Education Week reports that the headmaster of Barron Trump’s private school issued a statement opposing the arming of teachers. 

“The head of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School—where President Donald Trump’s son Barron attends—joined dozens of other Maryland private schools in urging the president, Congress, and state policymakers to improve background checks, especially for automatic weapons and strengthen mental health measures.

“And they don’t want to see the schools arm teachers with guns. The heads of school called that move—which has been embraced by Trump and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos—”antithetical to our profession as educators,” wrote St. Andrew’s head, Robert Kosasky and more than 100 other heads of school in an open letter published as an advertisement in the Baltimore Sun this week. The letter is also slated to be published in the Washington Post this weekend.”
