Allen Buyck, Superintendent of Broome-Tioga BOCES, says it's wise for educators to focus on social and emotional aspects facing children and adults.

He supports the idea of law enforcement dealing with safety concerns while teachers concentrate on students.

State Republican Representative Clifford Crouch says while he doesn't believe all teachers should be armed, school districts should be able to make those decisions for themselves.
