In The Region:

Less than a week after 26 people were killed at an elementary school in Connecticut, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the state has begun offering safety training for teachers.

Dewine discusses his reasoning for the plan

“The truth is while we train first responders, the real first responders in these tragedies are teachers. They are the ones who are there, they are the ones who are going to make the life and death decisions, they are the ones who are going to do what they can do to save lives. By the time the first responders get there, we may have a number of children killed.”

DeWine says his office has issued some guidelines for schools but thinks most schools are not yet meeting those guidelines. He says his staff will be working with schools in the coming months to put better safety practices in place. DeWine notes the one-year anniversary of the shooting at Chardon High School will be marked in February.

Listener Comments:

There are a range of issues concerning school security, mental health but please do not leave out the culture that fails to see the glorification of violence that desensitizes our citizens when it comes to life - given by our Creator. God needs to be put back into schools and in Government - He is the Giver of Life. Our nation is destroying itself and this generation and the ones upcoming are desensitized to the mess we are in. Put God first in all things and we may get back to a united nation with standards and morals. Or you can continue to attack the problem on the wrong end which will not solve anything! God bless you with wisdom and courage in the New Year! Please don't let us down, we need Godly Leadership and Ohio can start back on the track with you and your staff! Be there for us, we need Godly direction, wisdom and quidance that will make this nation united again! God bless you and know I represent many praying supporters of people who want to get back to God in all things! Thank You
