Golly, it's almost like insurance companies don't think armed teachers would make schools safer...

No school insurance for teachers with guns. Kansas lets teachers concealed carry in schools (with strict restrictions), insurers say "aw hell no!":

EMC, which Zalaznik estimated insures about 90 percent of Kansas’ 286 school districts, has issued a letter to its agents around the state, explaining that concealed carry would pose too great a risk.

It's the choice of the school board and of the insurer. It'd probably be a good idea to run teachers who carry through the same certifications armed security guards get. That'd probably appease the insurers.
