G is for Gun Documentary Screening
A thirty-minute documentary film exploring the highly controversial trend of armed faculty and staff in K-12 schools. Co hosted by: Counseling, Administration, Supervision, and Adult Learning (CASAL) and Curriculum & Foundations (C&F).
Only five years ago this practice was practically unheard of, but since the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012, it has spread to as many as thirteen states. Often without public knowledge, there are teachers, administrators, custodians, nurses, and bus drivers carrying guns in America’s schools. G is for Gun documents a growing program in Ohio that is training school staff to respond to active shooter situations with guns, and follows the story of one Ohio community divided over arming its teachers.
After the screening, there will be a 45 minute Q & A with the filmmaker Kate Way.
Date: November 1st, 5-7pm
Location: Music Building - Drinko Hall
