Teach­ers need re­spect, not guns

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - OPINION -

Can you please ask [Sarah Leonardi] to run for school board, I prom­ise I will vote for her! A very clear, well thought out and well rea­soned opin­ion.

I to­tally agree with it; schools have been get­ting the short end of the stick on fund­ing at least since I moved here 30 years ago. It was a dis­grace then and it’s a tragedy now.

Teach­ers are one of our most valu­able re­sources, yet we treat them like dirt. They should not have to carry guns to de­fend schools and chil­dren, they should be able to do their jobs that they went to school for and ded­i­cated their lives to.

It’s one of the no­blest pro­fes­sions in our coun­try, and we do not give them the re­spect they de­serve.

Julie Goldich, Park­land
