ISTA Statement on Bill Amendment Ask

ISTA Vice President Keith Gambill released a statement following ISTA testimony before a Senate committee. 

"Educators should never have to endure being fired at with pellets in an active shooter training," said Gambill. "What happened to the educators in Twin Lakes is unconscionable and unacceptable. ISTA is fighting to make sure no other educators in Indiana face the kind of fear-based, injurious training again. ISTA is asking for a simple amendment that would prohibit a school or district from conducting or authorizing an active shooter drill where any school employee or student may have any type of projectile fired at their person."
