Principal Killed by Shot Struggling with Student for Shotgun?

"CHICAGO, Sept. 29 — The principal of a rural Wisconsin school was shot to death on Friday, on the eve of what was to have been a weekend of homecoming festivities, by a 15-year-old who was disciplined on Thursday for having tobacco in school, the authorities said."

This artical in The New York Times should finally wake up school administrations around the country to the real need for school administrations get instruction for their teachers and staff on how to deal with 1. School Bullying and to take students complaints of it seriously 2. Attacks on campus. When I here of these kinds of events happening over and over again, I wonder why do school systems ignore the need for training. Training should consist of verbal technique, physical technique, not just the do the best you can variety but real violence deescalation technique. And techniques so principals aren't just struggling for a gun but taking it away and ending the problem.

So many people are out there and available in most communities that could be brought in and consulted Law enforcement, Maritial Arts experts etc.

Steve Smith, James Keating, Vladimir Vasiliev and others could give teachers and staff real effective and relitivly easy to learn methods to help end the violence or at least stem it.
