HALFWAY — Two masked men wearing hoodies and wielding handguns burst into the Pine Eagle Charter School in this tiny rural community on Friday. Students were at home for an in-service day, so the gunmen headed into a meeting room full of teachers and opened fire.
Someone figured out in a few seconds that the bullets were not drawing blood because they were blanks and the exercise was a drill, designed to test Pine Eagle's preparation for an assault by "active shooters" who were, in reality, members of the school staff. But those few seconds left everybody plenty scared.
They weren't expecting a drill like this, and they were caught by surprise when the two men entered and began firing.
I have some doubts about this... Cause on one hand, it really may have helped those teachers review thier thinking and their reaction times. I like to think the school admin knew about this and made sure any teacher who had a CPL was notified to prevent a real school shooting of police officers. I don't know. But I wonder who's idea THIS was!
What about some of you? I know a few of you are teachers, what are your thoughts on this? Would it help or hurt you???Answer Question

Well I think we should train our teachers in situations like that BUT to me that was a stupid stunt to pull specially if the teachers has never been train in how to react and what they should do or not.
