Georgia’s new gun law will now allow school districts to decide if they want to train school employees to be armed with guns.
But some districts are on the fence about the issue.
The Glynn County School District already has armed school police. Now many rural districts will have to make a decision on whether or not they want guns in schools.
The Brantley County School District hasn’t had a school resource officer on patrol for more than 15 years according to Assistant Superintendent Dr. Greg Jacobs. He said the school district is one of the poorest in the state of Georgia.
“You have to have funds to pay a school resource officer,” said Jacobs.
