5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes has introduced legislation to clarify that the U.S. Department of Education cannot allow school districts to use federal funds to arm teachers. Last year, reports indicated that the Secretary of Education would no longer prohibit school districts from using federal funds to purchase firearms or provide firearms training for teachers.  Hayes, the 2016 National Teacher of the Year, says people like her husband--a Waterbury Police Officer--shouldn't have to make the split second decision on whether an armed person is the bad guy or is a teacher.
