Gun

A survey of 10,000 educators finds a majority support the idea of having police officers in schools.

FOX's William LaJeunesse reports in our special series "Guns In America":

Guns In America.

For the first time we're hearing from teachers on how they feel about guns and school safety. A recent survey of 10,000 educators found 92% say they feel secure in their schools. But asked if their school was safe from gun violence, nearly a third said no. When it comes to guns, 70% do not want to be armed themselves but a majority surveyed favored cops on campus, provided their guns are secure. Denver teacher Eddie Egloff agrees.

(Egloff) "I love the idea of putting a policeman in each school and mostly because I think it would build great relationships between the students and the police officers."

About a third of schools nationally currently have armed police on campus.
