NC: Local Teachers Call For Self-Defense Training Following School Tragedies

Security cameras, locked doors, new ID badges: all helpful tools in keeping schools safe, but some local teachers are saying they're not enough.

School violence is a frightening new reality for educators like Judy Kidd, President of the Classroom Teachers Association of North Carolina. She says she doesn't feel safe in the classroom.

"Teachers are not trained well enough in safety on how to protect themselves and their students," says Kidd. She says schools have become a target for violence, and teachers are often on the front lines, unable to protect a classroom full of innocent children.
