Pakistan Teachers Get Gun TrainingPakistan Teachers Get Gun Training

Teachers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) are being given firearms training and will be allowed to take guns into the classroom in a bid to strengthen security following a Taliban massacre at a school last month, BBC News reported. Heavily armed militants killed 150 people, 134 of them children, in a bloody December 16 attack on an army-run school in Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan. “Carrying firearms for every teacher is not obligatory, but all those who want to carry firearms to schools willingly will be provided with permits,” said Atif Khan, the KP education minister.
