Several Florida school district leaders lined up to reject the idea of letting classroom teachers carry guns in schools as part of a guardian program even before Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the measure into law.
Bay County superintendent Bill Husfelt was not among them.
Husfelt welcomed the initial guardian plan a year ago, and said the expansion of the model would help keep his county’s students, employees and schools safe.
Already, he said, several teachers are signing up to get trained. Why is his perspective so different from many others?
Husfelt discussed his views with reporter Marlene Sokol.
